I use Synergy to use a single keyboard and mouse to control multiple computers. (Or, I should say, I used to use Synergy – more on that later.) It’s really great software. If you’ve never used it, and you have multiple computers on your desktop, I highly recommend that you check it out. For a free package, it’s wonderful.

One major annoyance with Synergy, though, is that the copy-and-paste functionality sometimes doesn’t work from machine-to-machine. The problem is kinda random; I never have been able to track down the source. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I’d looked for fixes in the past, but nothing seemed to stick.

Until today.

Today I discovered that someone has resurrected the Synergy project as Synergy+! (Synergy Plus). A group of programmers is actively developing the old Synergy code, and they have already ironed out a bunch of kinks, including that blasted cut-and-paste bug!

Big thanks, guys. I couldn’t be happier.

Download the new Synergy+ here, and your keyboard cut and paste problems will be no more.
