Copying and Pasting
 

Sometimes you may want to copy and paste content from your computer to the Apporto desktop, or vica versa.  You can do this using the copy and paste menus or keyboard shortcuts, for example, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.

 

  Clipboard access must be enabled in your browser settings in order to copy and paste between your computer and Apporto. 

  Copy and paste functions do not work across all applications and browsers. We recommend Chrome for optimal clipboard capabilities.

  If you are unable to copy and paste, we recommend uploading or downloading the file with the content you need.  Drag and drop is an easy way to accomplish this.

 

This short guide will show you how to:
 

Enable Clipboard
 

Enable Clipboad Access
 
In order to copy and paste between your computer and Apporto, you must first enable clipboard access in your browser settings.

When you launch an app or desktop, you will see a request for clipboard access.

Select Allow

If you accidentally select Block and want to change this later, go to your browser settings.

If you are not sure whether the clipboard is enabled or not, you may check Settings  in the upper right corner.
