Last Updated: Wednesday 9th October - Workaround

This is an update for all Synergy and macOS users.

Since the official release of macOS 10.15 Catalina on the 7th October we have been receiving some reports of compatibility issues with the Synergy software. We therefore recommend that in order to ensure full compatibility with Synergy that you stay on your current version of macOS until we are able to resolve these issues. We are working on a build that will resolve these issues and any further updates will be posted on this page. There is a workaround that users can try suggested below.
