Print key working in 2023?

I see several old article on the "Print" key but they are years old - back from 2018 or before.

Here it is 2023 - I'm running synergy with my mac mini as a server (1.14-6 snapshot 88fdd263)  and then several linux clients (all running Fedora 37 - synergy-1.14.6-snapshot.88fdd263.fc36.x86_64)

I start xev on the linux clients and they never see a keypress for print screen/sysrq|scroll lock|pause/break

Using the macos system preferences -> keyboard -> shortcuts - I can see where it does recognize those keys presses as F13, F14 and F15

I've tried to created a F13 "hotkey" to pass the same key along to the clients, but still do not get anything in xev on the linux clients where it sees that keypress

Where F12 passes thru to the clients just fine  - xev reports the keypress as :

KeyRelease event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x800001,
    root 0x6b5, subw 0x800002, time 10571175, (35,45), root:(680,88),
    state 0x0, keycode 96 (keysym 0xffc9, F12), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XFilterEvent returns: False

no biggie - as I've configured i3wm to use just "P" with some different mod keys for taking screenshots, but I'm just wondering if this ever got fixed from all of the previous related posts.
