Clipboard Synchronization

Troubleshooting

Clipboard Synchronization

Postby hendryjl » 14 Dec 2018, 18:46

I noticed that when using full control mode, and if I some issues when syncing the the clipboard.

When set to sync, if I am in the viewer window (controlling the remote machine) and I copy something with rich text (let's say, formatted text from a web browser), and paste it into another application ON THAT REMOTE MACHINE that supports rich text (Microsoft Word, let's say...), if I do it very quickly, I get the rich text. But, if I wait more than a second or two, it becomes simple/unformatted text. It seems like the application is converting it to simple text in an effort to sync it over to my host machine (running the viewer). The text is always simple if pasted into an application on the viewer PC.

So, a few comments/observations/questions...

  • Can you enhance the clipboard sync to support more than just simple text? Rich text, images, and other content would be nice.
  • If you can't, can you make it to where the sync process leaves the rich content on the clipboard of the system where it was copied, but then sync the simple text in case it's needed? That way you can still copy/paste the way you would expect when staying in the same machine context.
  • If I disable clipboard sync, then I don't have the issue. The text on the clipboard remains rich on the PC where it was taken, but of course, there is no sync, which I miss.
  • Even clipboard sync is disabled, the manual clipboard sync buttons (send/receive) are enabled, they just don't do anything. What would be nice is if they were either disabled (gray) when in this mode, or possibly better... you could have them still work, they would just sync the text (plain if it has to be) when selected.

If I'm just throwing things out there, having the clipboard have multiple modes would be really cool:
  • Automatic mode that would sync anything on the clipboard all the time (like RDP does). Could be bad on low bandwidth
  • Simple text only mode where the clipboard always synced simple text, but the sync buttons still were there to manually sync potentially larger full binary clipboard items
  • Manual mode (replaces disabled) where nothing automatically syncs, but you can still manually sync the clipboard using the buttons.

Anyway... just wanted to share those thoughts and ideas. For now, I've just decided to disable the sync and I still think it's a great piece of software!
