It is possible to copy text to and from remote desktops and applications. Your View administrator can set this feature so that copy and paste operations are allowed only from your client system to a remote desktop or application, or only from a remote desktop or application to your client system, or both, or neither.

This feature is available if you use the Blast Extreme display protocol or the PCoIP display protocol. Remote applications are supported with Horizon 6.0 or later.

Administrators configure the ability to copy and paste by using group policy objects (GPOs) that pertain to View Agent or Horizon Agent in remote desktops. For more information, see the topic about Blast Extreme or View PCoIP general session variables in Setting Up Desktops and Applications in View, in the chapter about configuring policies.

You can copy text from Horizon Client to a remote desktop or application, or the reverse, but the pasted text is plain text.

You cannot copy and paste graphics. You also cannot copy and paste files between a remote desktop and the file system on your client computer.
