Trouble with multi-language input

Hi. I've bought Synergy just earlier today - from the first impression, works quite better than Mouse Without Borders. I've quickly bumped into a small problem though. I have two devices - a desktop computer (server), and an average-sized x86 tablet (client). Both are running an English version of Windows 8.1 32-bit. Both have two input languages - English and Russian. The problem is: 1. Switching languages (set to Ctrl+Shift, if that matters) while on the client machine doesn't work as intended - indeed, it switches the language, but if the server' language is set to English, it'll continue sending English text. What is the expected course of action about this? 2. If I change the language to Russian while on the server, switch to client, and try typing something, Cyrillic characters will not successfully "get through", turning into question marks "?". Numbers and punctuation still work correctly (and with keyboard layout differences in mind). I assume that this is an encoding problem, but I haven't found any way to adjust it neither in the options nor on text_config wiki page. Quite curiously, at the same time copying text via clipboard works though. I would imagine that this would be more or less of a common and easily resolvable problem, but so far I was unsuccessful in my searches by related queries.

similar problem here.

OSX 10.12.6 server, Win10 client. Works fine when server's input language is set to English, but no output registered when server's input language is in Korean.

Exactly the same problem. If the server ENG on the client ENG and perklyuchaetsya ENG-RUS. If on the server RUS, on the client RUS and does not switch.

This is very disturbing. I bought the paid version, I thought everything would be fine on the last build. But this is not the case. This is bad, can anything be done about it?

Hello!

I have similar trouble. 

my configuration:
Server: macos big sur - synergy 1.13.0 stable
Client: Windows 10 64bit - synergy 1.13.0 stable

I use capslock for change input language on mac. when I use hangeul 2-set input methods on mac, synergy keyboard sharing not works at client (synergy keyboard sharing only works  at mac server's input method is English.) and when I pressed caps lock at client to capitalize chars, macos server input method has changed and keyboard not works at client.

and I think synergy is not designed to multiple input methods environment. at windows client, Korean IME input methods using right alt to change language and it also not works. 

I hope synergy team has priority to this...
