Right click and click and drag not working in Photoshop CS5 and only photoshop. Running windows 7 64bit.

Would synergy affect this?

This was happening to me as well, so I quit Synergy and it worked fine after restarting Photoshop. I'm also running Win7 64 with Photoshop CS5 64-bit.

  • Thankyou! This was doing my head in. Forgot I had the synergy service set to automatic start. Nov 1, 2012 at 11:20

There is a related issue being tracked. See: http://synergy-foss.org/tracker/issues/467#note-12

Try setting up your server to use the synergy application instead of the service (if that applies). It got my Photoshop cs5 working just fine.


I've also seen this happening in Google Chrome (v. 19): click-and-dragging to select text in the address bar fails - the initial click is registered, but no dragging ever occurs.

I have found that a temporary fix is to hit the Windows key twice (once to show the Start menu, then again to dismiss it). This doesn't fix it for long, but it's a faster & easier fix than restarting Synergy and/or Photoshop (I'm using CS4 on Win7 64-bit).
