Finding an annoying quirk. If a program is open in full screen mode on my synergy server, I cant get the mouse to leave the servers's two directly connected displays (usually)... Sometimes it works - like i jsut launged hulu to test and the first time i took it full screen, no mouse movement was blocked, all ok, then i un-full-screened it and moved it to my 2nd display on the same oc and again full screened it. This time, I was mouse limited to the synergy server and it's 2 displays.
Eg of programs that block the mouse movement: netflicks, southparkstudios.com player, Hulu.com player I am not having problems with vmware fusion 4 running a vm in fullscreen - mouse works on all displays
So, is there any way to force synergy to move the mouse to a client display with a combo-key-press, etc?
Info about my setup is already at: http://synergy-foss.org/osqa/questions/1477/way-to-describe-each-display-on-same-pc-separately-on-osx-multi-head-display
You could try the "Don't take foreground window on Windows servers" option in server settings.
You can use hotkeys to switch screens however this will still cause the current applicaiton to lose focus. Flash players tend to exit screen mode when they loose focus.
