Awingu allows copying and pasting content between applications, up to 5 MB in total. Awingu supports two different implementations (v1 and v2). In the Awingu Workspace, navigate to the profile icon (bottom left) > Account Settings > Browser status page to see the version that's being used.
Note: Using the local clipboard is disabled for guests.
To check which version is in use: when in the Awingu workspace, click on the profile icon (bottom left). Navigate to Account Settings > Browser Status.
Enabled if all these conditions are met:
- Using Awingu in a Chromium-based browser (such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge).
- Awingu is used in a secure context (HTTPS).
- When the feature is not disabled by the administrator.
- When the user has granted clipboard access (browser permission). It's possible the user has postponed or accidentally denied this permission.
- Google Chrome: to the left of the URL in the browser's address bar, you will see a lock icon. Click on it and navigate to "Site settings". Scroll to "Clipboard" and set to "Allow". Close the browser and retry.
- Microsoft Edge: to the left of the URL in the browser's address bar, you will see a lock icon. Click on it and navigate to "Permissions for this site". Scroll to "Clipboard" and set to "Allow". Close the browser and retry.
