Bad Import

I have used 2x which is what Parallels bought. It was a great product and always worked. I downloaded the new Parallel’s app and it saw the old client and did an import. 90% of the 20+ servers in my app have no server name. If I have to rebuild everything from scratch, why bother with an import.

Frustrating to use in touch mode, with a keyboard, or with a mouse

I am forced to use Parallels Client to connect to an EMR remotely (Windows app). The “features” (lack thereof) in this app make that very difficult.
It loses the connection to the Bluetooth keyboard (Brydge) I use on my iPad, if I switch to another app and return to Client (even if I do it right away), or if the keyboard remains unused for a short amount of time (minutes at most). I have to turn the keyboard off and back on to make it work again. It’s random, so I don’t know when I have to do that until typing just doesn’t work.

It also easily loses connection with my Bluetooth mouse, and I purchased that specifically because only 1 kind (Swiftpoint) works with Client.

That’s bad enough, but the touch mode for the mouse does not work for certain buttons or scrolling within the Windows app that is running in Client. I think it used to, before the update 2 months ago. It only works if I switch it to “Dumbo” mouse mode, but that is extremely inefficient for a touch interface (to use all of the time or to keep switching mouse modes).

I wish I had another option to connect to my EMR - this is that bad. Using a Windows app remotely on an iPad is tough enough, but Client is actually getting in the way and making it even worse.

Good app, small issue

I like the newer feel of this app versus the old 2X app. The only issue I have is in an RDP session on the iPhone 7+ when I bring up the keyboard doesn’t show a question mark key. The key is actually in the shift-numbers but it is represented by a back-slash even though pressing it gives a question mark. Please fix.
