You can drag and drop text and images from the client device to a published application or an open application in a remote desktop.

For example, you can drag text from Safari on the iPad and drop it into the WordPad application in a remote desktop. Both plain text and Rich Text Format (RTF) text are supported.

A Horizon administrator can configure how much data, and the type of data, that you can drag and drop. A Horizon administrator can also disable this feature.

This feature has the following limitations.

  • You cannot drag and drop multiple images at the same time. You must drag and drop each image separately.

  • You cannot drag and drop text and images at the same time. You must drag and drop text and images separately.

  • You might not be able to drag and drop a certain image, even though it does not exceed the clipboard size. This problem occurs when Horizon Client converts the image to PNG format and the PNG image exceeds the clipboard size. Horizon Client converts all images to PNG format during the drag and drop operation.

  • You cannot drag and drop text and images from a remote desktop or published application to the client device.

This feature requires an iPad that is running iOS 11 or later.
