It's strange and probably not a duplicate question (since I've read a lot of questions with this issue, but none match with my problem).

I believe I've setup everything correctly. In fact, I can copy from my iPad and paste to my mac using Universal Clipboards, no problem. But the other way is not working: I can't copy text from my mac and paste to my iPad.

I've reset iPad, and it's working again. Copy from mac, paste to iPad. But only after a while, it's not working again.

Actual stuff: I was having a list of issues, and I'm trying to create a tasks for each issue in my ipad's asana app. Just copy text from mac, trying to paste to asana task as a title. About first 3 copy-paste, it works, but the 4th or 5th copy-paste, it's not working anymore (just like before reset iPad). Copy from ipad and paste to mac still working.

How do I resolve this universal clipboard stuff?

PS: apple.stackexchange really should have a tag name: Universal clipboards

  • What universal clipboard are you using? – jmh Jun 30 '17 at 19:32
  • @john what? are there other universal clipboards? of course, it's the one where you shared clipboard with your apple devices! – Eddie Jul 2 '17 at 8:01
  • I have Notefile, Klipboard, and Nice Clipboard. I got all 3 to test them. They all work as advertised. I have copies on my iMac and iPad. Copies made from either device shows up on both. I suppose thats what you meant by universal. If not I'm really sorry. – jmh Jul 2 '17 at 13:12
  • So you use 3rd party stuff for the universal clipboard. I just use the default one, provided by Apple themselves. – Eddie Jul 3 '17 at 4:52
  • @Eddie did you manage to get a solution? I'm having a similar issue but I can copy from Mac and paste to iPhone but not the other way round... – Frakcool Apr 19 '18 at 2:25
