Issue

I originally discovered this is trying to rearrange my displays in the correct order ( in windows settings on the shadow environment ) . So in stead I went to window mode (alt+win+f) and re-arranged my shadow application instances instead.

I then proceeded with trying to customise my setup by moving an application to a different monitor and noticed I had the same problem, mouse wasn’t initiating a drag movement.

Steps to reproduce

  • Start shadow in automatic dual screen
  • Login to windows
  • Hold down mouse button while moving it
  • after release, cursor jumps back to original position from where you started dragging
  • disable dual screen ( without restarting the stream ) dragging works again

     
  • Bonus content ( probably related ): selecting, make this display my primary display option on a secondary screen hides the cursor all together, I think it gets confused on which screen it is supposed to be on. To fix, simple restart the stream, although the re-arrangement actually never happened ( or got reverted ), i think one option here would be to allow us to identify and arrange monitors before even starting the stream or from the shadow options quickmenu (alt+win+o)
