Screen locking mouse into output window

server

#1

Hi All
Has anyone else experienced this…?
I’m using a HDMI output of a laptop for my output screen.
I’m using stable version of 2.2 server and this config:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <paths>
    <media-path>media/</media-path>
    <log-path>log/</log-path>
    <data-path>data/</data-path>
    <template-path>templates/</template-path>
    <font-path>font/</font-path>
  </paths>
  <lock-clear-phrase>secret</lock-clear-phrase>
  <channels>
    <channel>
      <video-mode>1080p5000</video-mode>
                       <consumers>
        <screen>
          <device>2</device>
          <windowed>false</windowed>
        </screen>
        <system-audio/>
      </consumers>
    </channel>
  </channels>
  <controllers>
    <tcp>
      <port>5250</port>
      <protocol>AMCP</protocol>
    </tcp>
  </controllers>
  <amcp>
    <media-server>
      <host>localhost</host>
      <port>8000</port>
    </media-server>
  </amcp>
</configuration>

and when I launch Caspar, my mouse pops over to the screen which has the Caspar output window on it and I cant move it back to the other screen.

If I alter the config to include the line true then it seems to work OK.
Just wondered if its an issue or not?

I’ve experienced the same thing. Assuming you’re on Windows 10, I just alt+tab over to a window on the main display and it stops. I’m not sure why this happens.

So it does! Good find!

Is there a bug fix for this anyone?
