Anybody able to help with an SCX vs Parallels issue?
Posted 28 September 2012 - 03:40 PM
I've just upgraded to Parallels 8 and I notice that whenever I click on a running Windows window SCX drops out i.e. the SCX icon in the menubar changes from a checkmark with a 64 next to it to the American flag. I understand that within the Windows world SCX doesn't apply, and I do have SCX set such that Parallels is on the excluded applications list, but when I'm done with my Windows stuff and switch to another Mac application SCX remains switched off. I'm constantly having to manually re-enable SCX while doing my Windows stuff. Anybody out there know a fix or work-around for this?

One idea I had was to have QuicKeys reselect SpellCatcher when Parallels gets sent to the background. Unfortunately, QK is unable to recognize that event to trigger the action (which works fine when triggered manually).
Does anyone else have any ideas?

- Shut down Windows virtual machine.
- From Parallels Desktop menu go to Window -> Virtual Machines List -> right-click on your virtual machine -> select 'Show in Finder' -> right-click on the .pvm -> select 'Show package contents'-> open config.pvs using TextEdit -> locate the "KeyboardLayoutSync" tag -> change 'Enabled' value to '0' (zero) -> close config.pvs
- After that you can start your virtual machine once again and keyboard layouts in Windows and Mac will not be automatically synchronized."
