Hi Dan,

Currently you can copy and paste text through the chat feature, or collaborate by giving others mouse and keyboard control.

Re: Add Copy and Paste between desktops in a GoToMeeting.

Hi,

That is not what I want. I want to be able (like WebEX) to cut some text from a file on my desktop and then paste it into a screen session (like putty) or shell (vi), so that I can quickly pass information, commands to the client I am serving. The Chat feature does not do me any good, in that sense and it is cumbersome. Is there going to be a fix/enhancement, that will allow this. I have to decide which application to keep(goTomeeting or webex). I like gotomeeting, but the lack of this functionality makes it difficult.

Sorry, I understand that is not what you are asking for, just wanted to be clear about what is available currently. I'm not aware of plans to add this ability currently so I am going to change this topic to an Idea.

If you wouldn't mind could you post more details about your use case, and perhaps why using keyboard and mouse control to enter text directly isn't a good solution for you?

Re: Add Copy and Paste between desktops in a GoToMeeting.

Anywhere I need to manipulate text or files, copy and paste is the way to do it. If I'm working with a document that i can't send to a client, but I need to get part of it (code samples are a great example) onto their system I'm not going to type out dozens of lines of code. Pasting it into the chat is better, but adds a lot of time and complexity if I have to ask the other party to paste strings into a text box every time, especially if there are many.

If you guys don't add this feature before our current subscription period runs out (3 more months), we're switching to other more capable/sensible products, like TeamViewer.

Yes, this is an obvious and critical feature required in any collaberation meeting. It is a sad oversight at GTM if the product managers didn't see this need and apparently still don't see it. Or don't have the technical knowledge to fix it. It is 2013, we should be able to cut/paste. If you think the 'chat' is covering the need, then you don't understand meetings.

That is garbage. The product needs a real cut and paste.

Re: Add Copy and Paste between desktops in a GoToMeeting.

I too need the ability to copy/paste to/from remote machines. My company uses GTM largely in a support role. We, like others here, are debating a move away from GoToMeeting to WebEx or TeamViewer which seem better suited for support.

Question for Citrix:
Are there any plans to add this capability? If so is there an ETA?

Come on Citrix, please give us some help here.

I would vote for this feature also. Interesting to hear WebEx has it, I may take a look at that for our company.
