Sharing Your Clipboard

We think that this Just Works, and you won't have to think about it! But just in case, here's a thorough explanation of how Tuple shares your clipboard.

First of all, note that Tuple disables command keys by default. That's so that you don't accidentally command-tab on your pair's computer when you meant to command-tab away from Tuple. If you'd like to paste text on your pair's machine, make sure the Command Keys keyboard setting is enabled in the Guest Toolbar!

Each person has their own independent clipboard when pairing.

When you're the guest (that is, looking at someone else's screen), you can:

  • Copy text from your computer, mouse over the Tuple window, and paste the text on their computer.
  • Select something on your pair's computer, copy it, and paste it to your computer.
  • Copy text from your pair's computer and paste it elsewhere on their computer, without changing their clipboard.
  • Copy text from your computer and paste it elsewhere on your computer, without changing their clipboard.

When you're the host (that is, the person sharing their screen), you aren't seeing your pair's screen. So, you can work with your clipboard as if you weren't pairing. You can:

  • Copy text from your computer and paste it elsewhere on your computer, without changing your pair's clipboard.
