Remote App Key Location

I have been using this program to use a Remote Application on a server in our building, everything worked correctly until a recent update, now when I log in the location of anything I need to click is not aligned properly, say I need to click an OK button or X out of a window, I have to position the mouse cursor below the actual button or X to be able to click on it, something is not aligning correctly, if you can fix this isssue the application will be great again!

Good but needs streamlining

The program works well, only thing that i would change is too add a setting that once you click on the icon the session opens imediately instead of the normal Remote deskop page, as i only have one remote deskop connection and it just waste time waiting for that to open and then click on the session to open the session. Effectively reducing the number of clicks to get the desired results. That would be a nice update.

Major Oversight

I have been using the native RDC that came with my microsoft for Mac suite with no issue until recently when we upgraded our server to 2012 and it wouldn’t connect. I downloaded this one expecting it to be be suffient. I was wrong. The major oversight here is that they built this “app” with no ability to use the native mac keyboard shortcuts (copy, paste, etc). We have an ERP program on our server that operates almost solely on shortcodes that now we cannot use. This is so frustrating and I am in disbelief that they could create an app with such a major oversight!!!!
