I want to paste texts copied from host Windows PC to apps inside BlueStacks & vice versa. How to do this?

I am running BlueStacks beta-1...

Today, I installed Clipper Plus in BlueStacks and I noticed that its already storing clips I copied in Windows. I have also tried to copy a text in BlueStacks and paste in Windows. It has confirmed that clipboard has already been shared between BlueStacks & Windows. Great...

Either this feature has been pushed recently or I didn't notice it without Clipper Plus. I tried to paste using Ctrl+V in BlueStacks which still doesn't work. Do paste with proper method: Long-click & choose Paste from menu.

Do paste with proper method: Long-click & choose Paste from menu That's all to it. Well I am shocked :D Thanks – SuvP May 19 '13 at 15:50

I don't know if this will work with BlueStacks specifically, but whenever I want to share a clipboard between my PC and Android device, I use AirDroid.

Physically, I am on same device, so I'd like to do Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V.. – Evil Angel Oct 25 '12 at 1:23
When it comes to AirDroid, how are you really going to connect these two devices? – Evil Angel Oct 25 '12 at 1:24

Use something like Evernote to write and exchange stuff between any two devices, including PC and BlueStacks.
