    In Adobe Indesign CC 2019 I’m using these keyboard/mouse shortcuts:

    -SHIFT-mouse left click/drag = keeps the bounding box proportional as I drag it

    -CMD-SHIFT-mouse left click/drag = stretches the object in the bounding box proportionally as I drag it

    When I connect to my Mac with NoMachine I had to check “Grab the keyboard input” to get my CMD key working.  However even with this enabled neither of the SHIFT/mouse shortcuts listed above work. If I leave the on-screen keyboard up I can see that my SHIFT and CMD keys are recognized by the server, but when I drag with my mouse it behaves as if they weren’t depressed/active.

    Any ideas on how I can get this working?

    [Software versions]

    NoMachine 6.9.2

    Client = Windows 10 Pro x64 Version 1909

    Server = macOS Sierra 10.12.6

    Adobe Indesign CC 2019



    we are currently investigating your issue. In the meanwhile could you try to edit NoMachine option file:/Applications/ add below line, then restart server and let us know if that changed anything?

    DisplayServerExtraOptions "-oldeventapi 1"


    That worked!  It all works correctly now, thanks!
