Running Synergy 2 I have a Windows 10 PC and an Apple iMac running High Sierra, the Windows PC is the server. I find that quite often I cannot copy and paste between the 2 machines, if I res

I have this issue as well. Since the beginning (wow, like 10 years?) and with a variety of OSs (Win XP, Win 7, Win 10, Mac, Ubuntu 16.4). Doesn't seem to be OS dependent at all. Right now I've go

I started with Synergy in June 2016 and had the problem with Copy and Paste from the beginning. I used first 1.5.0, then v1.7.6, v1.8.8 and now v1.9.1. Because I also use some machines with Debia

Next, I'm going to experiment with Increasing my Enable clipboard sharing to something more than 3 MB, and I might try to create some hot keys so that I can Copy and Paste without having to drag and drop my files, word, excel, pdfs,  images, dwgs, movies, etc.  When I do my video editing, I would love to just drag and drop video snippets from my Archive Computer to my editing computer seemlessly.  Heck, I'd be happy if I could dual boot into my legacy software in my XP hard drive and have Synergy take up where it left off! [so far, I have to use a combination of MWOB and Synergy to do so, and still use the latest edition of Synergy].  hint, hint, wink, wink!  Other programs have embraced compatibility mode, why not?

Hi everyone

I too am a long time user.. works really well but have experienced copy and paste issues.  Mainly it stops working after a while.

I've always thought it was caused by filling up the clipboard cache.

Just read restarting Synergy on each machine fixes it, tried it and it did work.

I have found this possible fix for Windows10 user:

Have fun!

Does not work for me either. I use a notepad++ file on the server and have each machine have it up. Then cut paste into notepad save and it updates on the other computers. Kind of a poor mans version. Not going to use a windows login with MS. I only use local accounts.

I'm using Synergy Pro 1.11.1-stable-55ec3105.

Windows (Host) on my left and Mac Catalina (Guest) on my right.

I've found that after a while, the clipboard for transferring copied text between the two stops working. I had to open the Synergy app on my Windows host and click Apply again to refresh the connection. Then the clipboard starts to work again. Annoying!
