Version 7.4.1 does seem to fix the issue! Thank you!
Added that line to node.cfg but it made no difference, so I’ve recorded a video from the Windows machine, showing what I see on the NX client when using the arrow keys to move the caret on the Xcode editor. At the end of the video I try to move by to various positions simply clicking around the text with the mouse. And just to reiterate, the caret does move correctly on the mac running the NX server, the updates are just not sent out correctly to the NX client.
Outside of Xcode it seems to work ok.
Yes, I’ve tried with 7.3.2 on both sides, makes no difference.
I updated the Mac from MacOS Catalina to Big Sur and now I can only reproduce the issue on the Xcode text editor (with any text or source code file open). I’d swear it reproduced on Apple’s TextEdit app too but now it doesn’t.
I’ve also installed NX 7.3.2 on a Mac Mini that I use as media center, also running Big Sur, and the problem is reproducible there too. Another thing I tried is switching the various display encoding options, since it feels like it could be that the NX server is not sending display updates for such small changes like the caret moving, but no luck.
As for the affected versions, this is what I know so far:
– 6.12.3 is working fine.
– 6.13.1 does not have this issue but it suffers of this one other bug that messes up text selection with the mouse, so it’s basically unusable.
– 7.1.3, 7.2.3 and 7.3.2 all have this issue.
– The NX client version is not relevant. I’m using right now the 7.3.2 client with the 6.12.3 server.
I could perhaps make a video of the issue, if you think it’d help?
Also happy to try out tweaking the configuration settings if that could help.
Tried the 6.13.1 windows client with the 7.2.3 Mac server and the problem persists. After downgrading the server to 6.13.1 the problem is gone.
Hopefully the mods/devs can confirm that this is a bug in 7.2+?November 10, 2020 at 09:49 in reply to: The Win key gets stuck when copying and pasting from Windows to macOS #30277
Awesome, thank you! Looking forward to have this one fixed.November 5, 2020 at 11:12 in reply to: The Win key gets stuck when copying and pasting from Windows to macOS #30215
Hmm that link says that some key combinations are never captured and that is not really the case here, since Win + C or Win + V work fine while over the NX client window. I can copy and paste stuff on the mac. The problem only arises when switching focus between any other Windows app and the NX client and then rapidly issuing a key combination that includes the Win key. If a small delay is introduced before issuing the key combo then it works. Is that clearer now?
I’ve signed up for a notification on the FR, though I guess I don’t have high hopes seeing that it was created in 2015…
Silly me, I didn’t realize I could also remap the keys on the client side, doh! AutoHotkey to the rescue then 🙂 Thank you!
