Connection dropped when copying certain text

2 posts in this topic

I have a Mac OS X 10.10.3 Synergy (v1.7.3) server running with a Windows 7 Synergy (v1.7.3) client. When I copy text from the Windows 7 client and drag my mouse to back to the Mac server, the clipboard is not brought over and the connection to the server is dropped temporarily. For example, StackOverflow text cannot be copied from my Windows 7 client and brought to the Mac OS Server unless I first paste it in another text editor in Windows and re-copy and paste it into the Mac side: Reproduction path: 1. Set up Mac Server for Synergy 2. Set up Windows Client for Synergy 3. Connect the client to the server 4. On the client visit: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5125 ... mand-line/ 5. Highlight and copy text from the question on stack overflow 6. Bring mouse to Server side and try to paste 7. Old clipboard contents (or nothing) is pasted 8. Attempt to bring mouse back to client side - mouse will not move to client side.

Just for an update - I've updated my software on both client and server to 1.7.4 and this error still persists however the temporary disconnect is no longer there. I'll make a different thread for the issue of the clipboard not copying. Thanks!
