Shared Clipboard

You can enable this feature in Screens’ app settings, to automatically share the clipboard content between your iOS device or Mac and the remote computer. Anything copied on either your iOS device or Mac will automatically be transferred over the network to the other clipboard.

If you disable Shared Clipboard, you must manually transfer content via the Send Clipboard and Get Clipboard action buttons.

Sending and Receiving Clipboard Content

While connected to a remote Mac, you can share content including images, rich and plain text, and URLs. Any unsupported content will be transferred as plain text.

Only plain text can be transferred to/from a Windows, Raspberry Pi or Linux PCs. When sending, the copied text will be typed directly into any active UI control that accepts keystrokes on the remote computer, such as a text editor, a browser address bar, etc.
