Movements of mouse pointer get restricted

Movements of pointer can get confined to a rectangle in the centre of the Player window under the following condition:

1) NoMachine Player window is in full screen mode, while showing a remote physical desktop

2) Grab mouse input" is turned on

3) Initial size of the remote desktop is small and switching to a larger size is possible without exceeding the size of full-screen windowed Player


Under those conditions, if the user presses the button "Resize remote screen", the remote screen will actually switch to a larger size, but the mouse pointer stays confined to the smaller area where the desktop was laying before the resize.

Workaround: Turn mouse grabbing off, then turn it on again. The area which confines the cursor will adapt to the new size.

Tip: Mouse grabbing state can be toggled using shortcut Ctrl+Alt+click.
