Computer Name display too short

4 posts in this topic

In my environment,the names of all the computers I wish to connect start with the same 9 characters. Synergy 2 only shows me the first 8 or 9 characters of the computer in the display, making it impossible for me to visually tell which is which. Some sort of tool-tip with the full computer name or method for making the boxes bigger or font smaller would be great. Thanks!

How long are the fully qualified names?

I actually had the same problem with the unchanged default computer names since they all go like DESKTOP-XXXXXXX.

Now you can find the full name by right clicking.

I suggested exactly this some time ago. There are plans to implement an alias feature but this is quite tricky to do. However, I agree that a pop-up tooltip would do the job and should be simply to implement. Currently, if you right-click on a screen you get some options which do include the full name.
