Can't right click or copy paste!

I'm using the mac osx client, running Lion.

The problem is that I cannot right click anymore (used to be by pressing ctrl + click), and copy pasting still doesn't seem to work between my mac and the connected computer.

Please fix soon!

Thanks

Dear valued customer:

Thanks for your feedbacks and we acknowledge the ctrl+click for right-click issue.

Ctrl-click for right-click has been intentionally removed in v1.2.2 to allow ctrl+click for selecting multiple files on remote Windows hosts.

We'll bring back ctrl-click for right-click for remote Mac hosts in the next update (i.e. ctrl+click will not act as right-click on remote Windows hosts).

Regarding copy and paste between remote and client machinese, this feature is not yet supported on Splashtop to date.

 

Thanks for your understanding and we apologize for the inconveniences caused.

 

Best regards,

Hi, I am running the latest osx client v1.3.3, but I still can't bring up any right click menus on my windows machine.  Also why do I have to go through the mac store, ideally I want to downgrade to the version where the ctrl+click acted as the right click but I can't. Very very frustrating.

Dear valued customer:

Thanks for your feedbacks and we admit the update to remove ctrl+click for right-click since v1.2.2.

Ctrl+click for right-click has been intentionally removed since v1.2.2 to allow ctrl+click for selecting multiple files on remote Windows hosts.

We'ved bring back ctrl+click for right-click for remote Mac hosts in v1.3.3, but we decided to keep ctrl+click for right-click removed on remote Windows hosts to allow ctrl+click for selecting multiple files.

Please understand that if we bring back ctrl+click for right-click for Windows hosts, then ctrl+click for selecting multiple files will be totally disfunctional.

 

 Thanks for your understanding and we apologize for the inconveniences caused.

 

Best regards,

Thanks for your quick response,  but is it not possible to make this a configurable option?  How else can I bring up the right click menu without using a mouse?

Have you guys not fixed this issue yet?    Splashtop is unusable without right functionality (When remoting to windows machine from OSX)

I'm also looking for a solution to this issue!! Has anyone come up with a good work-around for it?

I'm remote logging into a Windows PC from OSX (Macbook Air) and can't right-click or open the context menu.

I understand the need to keep Ctrl+Click as multi-select in Windows.. but, is there another way this could be accomplished? What about the Option key + Click? Also, now the CMD key maps to the Windows key which I certainly could do without. So, Option+Click or CMD+Click would work just fine for me and I don't think they really have any behavior today in the Windows host.
