To copy and paste text, you must use the Paste Text and Get Copied Text commands from the drop-down menu located at the right end of the client menu bar.

The View administrator must either leave the default policy in effect, which allows users to copy from client systems and paste into their remote virtual desktop, or else the administrator must configure another policy that allows copying and pasting.

To copy text from your client system to the remote desktop:

a

Copy the text on your client system.

b

Inside your remote desktop, click the down-arrow on the tab at the top-center of the window to display the menu bar.

c

Select Paste Text from the drop-down menu located at the right end of the client menu bar.

d

Paste the text into the dialog box that appears.

e

Position your mouse cursor in the application where you want to paste the text.

f

Click Paste in the Paste dialog box and then close the box.

The text is pasted into the application.

To copy text from your remote desktop to your client system:

a

Copy the text in your remote desktop.

b

Inside your remote desktop, click the down-arrow on the tab at the top-center of the window to display the menu bar.

c

Select Get Copied Text from the drop-down menu located at the right end of the client menu bar.

If you do not see the Get Copied Text command in the drop-down menu, it means either that you are using a browser that does not support WebSockets or that your View administrator has not configured your setup to allow you to copy text from the remote desktop to your client system, as mentioned in the prerequisites to this procedure.

d

In the Get Copied Text dialog box, select and copy the text again.

The text is now copied to your Clipboard.

e

On your client system, paste the text as you normally would.
