Teamviewer 13: Can't copy clipboard or files, and more

I have the new Teamviewer 13 on both Windows 10 (the remote host) and Linux Ubuntu 16.04 (the client).

The new Teamviewer's toolbar and features are restricted indeed. The clipboard doesn't copy between machines; I cannot find how to transfer files; there is no option to optimise for speed (the host has a slow internet connection); there is no remote update. EDIT: Also, there is no option to resize the remote computer to its original size on the client machine.

Is there a way to access the old features, or have they been deleted from Teamviewer 13?

File Box, chat and many other options are not available on the Linux client.

I can't transfer files to my Linux PC during a remote session from Windows. 13 R2 did not even fix it.

I am switching back to 12 unfortunately and having to deal with all "other party have a newer version" warning...

Unfortunately, switching to v12 means that you cannot connect to a remote server with v13. It's a mess, sadly. I wish that TeamViewer would reply so that we know whether they intend to fix it or leave it out forever.

Christian, how can you label a question answered when your answer is that TeamViewer does not do that but you are working on it.  If you are working on it, it should be labeled not answered.  if you are not working on it, then answer that you are not.

I don't find using this forum to find solutions useful when it has answers like this.

Johnathon, I am one of those hunting.  I thought that it was a problem that had been solved.  Which is what it says.  A problem that still exists but someone plans to solve some day is not solved.  It sure misled me.

Thank you.  That is appropriate.

I am still using 12.  A rather conservative guy.  I am trying to assess whether the time is right yet.  Advice is appreciated.

Based on my experience, I would avoid 13 at this stage. Too many important features are missing. But, you have to take to care to prevent all of your remote hosts from automatically upgrading to version 13. You can't get into them if you're on 12 and your remote is on 13.

When it comes out of Beta, perhaps then it will be ready for prime-time.

I had the foresight to set my client computers such that they do not update unless I tell them to specifically do this.  

I was not aware 13 is still a Beta.  That answers my question for sure.  I will not touch it until some time after beta is over.
