You can copy text to and from remote desktops and published applications. A Horizon administrator can configure this feature so that copy and paste operations are allowed only from the client system to a remote desktop or published application, or only from a remote desktop or published application to the client system, or both, or neither.

A Horizon administrator can configure the ability to copy and paste by using group policies that pertain to View Agent or Horizon Agent in remote desktops. For more information, see HTML Access Group Policy Settings. A Horizon administrator can also use group policies to restrict clipboard formats during copy and paste operations. Because HTML Access supports transferring only text in the clipboard, only the text filters work with the HTML Access client. For information about using group policies to filter clipboard formats, see the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.

You can copy up to 1 MB of text, including any Unicode non-ASCII characters. You can copy text from the client system to a remote desktop or published 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 the client computer.

Note:

The copy and paste feature is not supported in iOS Safari or Android devices.
