Hi @paolosavigni,

I hope I understand your request: TeamViewer lets you keep the clipboard synchronized.

Check on Extras -> Advanced -> Clipboard Sync

Hope this help.

I am using Mac and TV 13. You need to unable your preference. 
Go to Team Viewer Menu --> Preference --> General --> Under the first box (unable control and mouse click as right click)

This does the trick for me and I am able to get the copy paste done by unabling this check box.

Not sure this is what is intended.
I operate remotely to access my home pc (works well) but I want to select a range of cells in one file and then paste them into the same range on another file. Both files being in my home pc.
I can't see how to remotely hold shift and drag to select the range of cells.

I don't think that is what the original question was, but in case you didn't figure this out or someone from google needs the info:

You can select multiple items without dragging the selection tool by selecting your first item, then holding shift, then selecting the last item. This works in most Windows programs.

So in Excel, you can click the top left cell you want then, while holding shift, click the bottom right cell that you want. So if you click on A1 then, while holding shift, click B10 you will have selected A1:B10 

Hope this helps

It doesn't seem to work between a windows remote and linux host.

May I know where this particular "Extras" option is? I checked the "Extras" menu in TV13's main GUI, inside the "Options" dialog, under "Advanced" section, I couldn't find anything setting related "Clipboard sync." Could you please indicate the exact location of this option?

what about an answer to the question of Flying?

I am currently using http://wepaste.com to have immediate text exchange between computers. But I feel this could be integrated into TeamViewer and would enhance the user experience. Be aware: to have a common clipboard makes sense only if it works independently of OS type (see answer of david48).

Hi Flying,

You will be able to find the Clipboard Synchronization option by following the steps below:
1. Select "Extras" located at the top left of the TeamViewer application screen.
2. Select "Options" from the drop down menu.
3. Select the "Advanced" tab and click on "Show advanced options".
4. Scroll down to the "Advanced settings for connections to other computers " section.
5. Clipboard Synchronization should be the 4th check-box down, located just above "Lock remote computer" option.
Hope this helps.

Hi Yuhi,

Thanks for your pointers. I checked and I have already had clipboard sync enabled by default.

Nonetheless, my remote sessions have not been able to operate properly with clipboard.

Do you have any clue how I could proceed with debugging this problem?

Regards,

Flying

Hi, I cannot copy and paste over a Teamviewer sessiona s in the past. I am running Windows 10 on both pc's. I had to reinstall Windows 10 on the one PC, but now I can't transfer files from clipboard anymore. The clipboard function is switched on. What else can be done to rectify this issue?

What about the web client on chrome?
