Three finger Swipe on Client

13 posts in this topic

Hi there,

Just bought the license for PRO version.

Setup: iMac (Server), rMBP (Client), Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad

I can do three finger swipe gestures on the server mac but not on the client mac. Any suggestions/help is appreciated.

Thanks

Does the client machine support three finger swipe gestures natively?

Yes. When I connect the trackpad via Bluetooth , it works just fine.

This is when you are doing three finger swipe gesture on your server machine while you have the trackpad connected to your client machine, correct?

Think you may have misunderstood my issue. Here it is again:

Server : iMac 2017, 27", macOS Sierra, Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad

Client: rMBP 2016, macOS Sierra

Issue: Can't do three finger gestures like three finger swipe to move desktops on client.

So client isn't connected to trackpad .. it is connected to Sever.

 Thanks

For gestures, I think it needs to have the same hardware on the other machine for it to be recognized since it can have custom actions to perform.

So you mean, I need to purchase another Magic Trackpad and connect it to the client Mac? Since my client Mac is a laptop it has the trackpad. 

I am not sure if I am following you properly.

Sorry for the confusions @Murthy. I tried to dig deeper in to this issue and found this Gestures broken for Magic Mouse on Mac client #2905 . It was confirmed to be a bug and our developers are doing the best they can to have a fix for this.

Any update on this topic?  It's been nearly a year, and the link to that #2905 is broken...  I'd love to have Synergy pass gestures between my mac server and my mac client...

Just figured I'd add another voice to the chorus of "please make the full range of trackpad gestures work on Mac". Or, at least make it clearer that they DO NOT work. It's really quite awkward to have to adjust to certain things feeling missing/broken on all macs but the server. In my case, my "client" machines are not infrequently used or of lesser priority—both machines are fairly fundamental to my workflow, and it would be great if we could use the gestures on both.

Thanks for your consideration.

(This is one of those situations where source code access would be great, too, as I could explore fixing it myself)

Moved to Feature Ideas to better reflect the nature of this post.

It's my understanding that gesture support is coming in Synergy 3, which should be fully available in 2022 and as an alpha later this year or early next year.
