Qemu Spice Copy & Paste

Hi guys,

So I’ve set up a VM - Windows guest from arch. Mainly using virt-manager but with some XML tweaks in there as well.

I’ve been trying to get the copy and paste between host and guest working for hours, but nothing seemed to work. I however just now discovered that it likely was working…But only for text…

So, copying a file, will paste over the location of that file as a text string; normal text copies over fine. Is this expected behavior? And if not - Does anyone have any clues as to why it’s working this way?

Thanks in advance
