To copy and paste text, you must use the Copy & Paste button located at the top of the sidebar.

This procedure describes how to use the Copy & Paste window to copy text from your local client system to a remote application or how to copy text from a remote application to your local client system. If, however, you are copying and pasting text between remote applications and desktops, you can simply copy and paste as you normally would, and there is no need to use the Copy & Paste window.

The Copy & Paste window, which you can open from the button at the top of the HTML Access sidebar, is required only for synchronizing the Clipboard on your local system with the Clipboard in the remote machine.

The text in the Copy & Paste window displays one of the following messages to indicate in which direction the user can copy and paste content.

Use this panel to copy & paste content between your local client and remote desktop/application.

Use the panel to copy & paste content from your local client to remote desktop/application.

Use the panel to copy & paste content from your remote desktop/application to local client.

If you are using a Mac, verify that you have enabled the setting for mapping the Command key to the Windows Ctrl key when using the key combinations to select, copy, and paste text. Click the Open Settings Window toolbar button in the sidebar and turn on Enable Command-A, Command-C, Command-V, and Command-X. (This option appears in the Settings window only if you are using a Mac.)
