Mouse Wrap-around or other support for multi-display client?

Is there a setting somewhere to that will allow the mouse to wrap around when it hits the edge of a system?  What I'm trying to deal with is 2 systems, but one of them has two displays that bracket the main display.  Something like this:

[Sys2:Disp2]   [Sys1:Disp1]   [Sys2:Disp1]

Using Synergy 3 RC1, I don't see any way to configure more than one display for a client, so my next best idea was to configure Sys2 such that Disp2 is on the right of Disp1 in its native multi-monitor config, and then if I could get Synergy to wrap the mouse around when it hit an edge, it would effectively work.  But, it doesn't seem Syn3 has wrap-around support for the mouse?  What are the odds we could see this in a future version?

Thanks for any info or ideas.

Hi Brad,

I contacted Synergy Support in April 2023 with this question.

They replied: "We are considering adding a wrap option in Synergy 3, although that will probably not be available until after GA. In the meantime, it's possible to support the layout using a custom configuration in Synergy 1."

I therefore did not upgrade to Synergy 3, but I believe the first version is still available to download, which I still use.

Symless offered to help with the process, but I used the principle of the below solution.

It works fine with my old MacBook Pro laptop between a M1 Mac mini with dual monitors (and, as you note, the monitor order reversed).

Thanks much, Richard, I will consider downgrading to v1 and see if I can get the configs you linked to work for me.

Hi Brad,

No problem, glad it helped.

Hopefully, this feature will be added to Synergy 3 at a future date.

Cheers,
Richard
