If you have an iPad that is running iOS 11 or later, you can drag 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. A Horizon administrator can also disable this feature.

This feature has the following limitations.

  • You cannot drag multiple images at the same time.

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

  • You might not be able to drag 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 text and images from a remote desktop or published application to the client device.
