Multiple monitor and custom monitor positioning support

Synergy supports multiple monitor configuration; however, the current version of Synergy only works when the layout is completely separated between computers. The following layouts are supported:

As long as the monitors are symmetrical (2x2, 4x4) or linear (2x1, 3x1, 4x1), Synergy will recognize them as one large screen, and the mouse movement between them will be seamless.

If your monitors are positioned at different heights, or they are of different sizes and you only want them to switch in specific areas, this is possible using a custom configuration. The following setups are supported:

These require a custom manual config file; you can reach out to our tech support team to set this up. The config file for example 2 above is: 

section: screens

Computer 1:

Computer 2:

Computer 3:

end

 

section: aliases

end

 

section: links

Computer 1:

down(0,50) = Computer 2(0,100)

down(50,100) = Computer 3(0,100)

Computer 2:

up(0,100) = Computer 1(0,50)

right(0,100) = Computer 3(0,100)

Computer 3:

up(0,100) = Computer 1(50,100)

left(0,100) = Computer 2(0,100)

end
