I am absolutely in love with two iOS features - when I copy something on my Mac, it gets sent to my iPhone on Paste. And if I need to feed some text from paper, the scan text feature is pretty solid!

@nitinkhanna Sadly the copy-paste behavior is not consistent for me.

@pratik sorry to hear that! I'm on macOS 10.15 Catalina and iOS 15. On a shared wifi which is using a TP-Link wifi router (not provided by my ISP). Does that look somewhat similar to your setup?

@nitinkhanna @pratik sometimes paste just doesn’t record … synching is independent to router .. cos it just ‘works’ with iCloud?

@JohnPhilpin it's not using the local network? How horrid!

@nitinkhanna not really … if I copy something when on the road .. I want it in the history … no?

@JohnPhilpin what history? iCloud keeps a history of the clipboard somewhere?

See, this is why OmniCopy is awesome. It used Dropbox though, which some people are averse to.

@nitinkhanna open up paste on device or computer … you will see the history of your ‘copies’

@JohnPhilpin ok. We’re out of sync. What is paste? Is it a dedicated app by Apple? I’m talking about the instantaneous copy paste feature between iOS and Mac. How can it have any interface to view a history?

@JohnPhilpin Ok, I don’t have it. Have started my trial now. Have you opted in for full access on the keyboard, or just “paste”? I’m a little worried about giving full access…

@odd I have been on full access and just switched to paste only - will report on what breaks as a result.

Paste trial or setapp trial?
