If you use non-English keyboards and locales, you can use an IME (input method editor) that is installed in the local client system to send non-English characters to a published application.

You can use the Input menu in the menu bar on the Mac or keyboard shortcuts to switch to a different IME. You do not need to install an IME on the server that hosts the published application.


On a Mac, an IME is called an input source.

When this feature is enabled, the local IME is used. If an IME is installed and configured on the server that hosts the published application, that remote IME is ignored.


  • Verify that one or more IMEs are installed in the client system.


  1. In theHorizon Client desktop and application selection window, Control-click a published application and select Settings.
  2. In the Remote Applications pane, select the Extend the local IME to hosted applications check box.
  3. Use the local IME as you might use it with locally installed applications.


The Input menu appears in the menu bar on the Mac client. When you use a published application, you can switch to a different language or IME by using the Input menu or keyboard shortcuts. Key combinations that perform certain actions, such as Command-C to copy and Command-V to paste, work correctly.
