Different keyboard layouts

Recommended Posts

Does any one know if using different keyboard layouts with synergy is possible? 

Recently begun my quest to teach myself programmer dvorak and when ever I use qwerty it feels like I'm forgetting what little skill in dvorak I have. This would likely also be a problem for people who use non English layouts.

If this is something that can already be done let me know.

Synergy 2 has the same problems as Synergy 1 when it comes to keyboard layouts. We probably won't be tackling this until 2.3 or 2.4 late next year.

Please let us know if you'd like a refund.

What are the chances that a popular feature request would quicken this development? No refund needed, I still love synergy in its current state. Might even attempt to create my own solution later... Although by the time I get around to it you might already have it done!

We prioritise the most popular requests first. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them.

I second moving up modifier key remapping.  I use Alt for Command on my Mac all the time and it was a function in Synergy 1...thinking of reverting until this is resolved.

Also second moving up the key remapping functionality. I needed to downgrade back to synergy v1 for this reason.

Alternatively you could just make that default behavior... I suspect no one likes having command mapped to the windows key.

+1.  Perhaps just a couple different versions?   One for PC users: Ctrl => CMD.   Are there any 3rd party work-around that do will do it?

Well I would like to help make this a popular request, where do we vote on this?

Agreed with all that have said it already...

Being able to remap the modifier keys is essential for anyone who uses a Windows/macOS setup; at least, for me it is anyway!.  Fortunately at the moment I am not a heavy user so am not that bummed about losing the ability to remap in V2, but I think it should defo be added back in.
