By default, you can copy and paste text from your iOS device to a remote desktop or application. If a View administrator enables the feature, you can also copy and paste text from a remote desktop or application to your iOS device or between two remote desktops or applications. Supported file formats include plain text, images, and Rich Text Format (RTF). Some restrictions apply.

A View administrator can set this feature so that copy and paste operations are allowed only from your iOS device to a remote desktop or application, or only from a remote desktop or application to your iOS device, or both, or neither.

Data that you copy to the clipboard is automatically copied to your remote desktop's clipboard when you log in to the remote desktop. If you are logged in to a remote desktop, data that you copy to the remote desktop's clipboard is automatically copied to your iOS device's clipboard. If RTF data contains images, the images are lost when Horizon Client synchronizes the RTF data in the remote desktop's clipboard with the data in your iOS device's clipboard.

The clipboard can accommodate a maximum of 1 MB of data for copy and paste operations. If the text and RTF data together use less than maximum clipboard size, the formatted text is pasted. Often the RTF data cannot be truncated, so that if the text and formatting use more than the maximum clipboard size amount, the RTF data is discarded, and plain text is pasted. If you are unable to paste all of the formatted text you selected in one operation, you might need to copy and paste smaller amounts in each operation.
