The keyboard problems are still not fixed

The keyboard eventually goes to a weird state when arrows start emitting numbers. It's essentially NumLock that cannot be turned off. It applies not only to the keypad, but also to the corresponding keys outside the keypad. The only solution I found is to disable NumLock using xmodmap, but it only works if the remote is Linux.

Great app - This version has issues.

I’ve been using this app for a very long time, without issue. This partiuclar version seems to be having issues. The remote connections stay open, but it locks up and I have to restart the app. Needs more work...

It’s a surprise to me

happens that I have open RDP this morning and accept to have a free trail.
1) Performance is super good.
2) The way to use app, like visio, is really convenient!!!

only thing I’m struggling is: how to get out the file I created using a free trail account.

I guess I may be able to get the data out if I subscribe to office 365. but just a guess.
