Re: sends the contents of the clipboard to the remote machine

Chris Mullins


In the help guide of the Remote Support add-on it states:

“The Push clipboard option in the remote menu allows you to push text from your clipboard. when activated, any text on the clipboard will be pushed to the other machines.”

What it doesn’t say is whether this command can be executed on both the controlling and controlled computers in the remote session.  When I have been the controlling user in a remote session I have used the Push Clipboard command to enable me to populate a text file previously created on the controlled machine but I have never done it the other way around as Luke describes below.

I have not tried it with graphical content or other formatted type text or data.

I have transferred word documents this way, by opening them on the remote,

selecting all, copying, sending it to the control, and pasting into another word

document on my local machine.


A pain, but it works.


And if there is a MIME encoder (or UU Encoder) on the remote, any file could be

losslessly converted to text and moved this way.  But that is a lot of effort.
