Copy/Paste – From Mac to Virtual box

I am working on a document on mac (osx 10.9) and I have a virual machine running windows 7 – the issue is I dont know how to enable it so I can copy text from the word document in mac to the word document or application in the virtual box.

I have guest editions installed and enabled …

How does one enable copy and paste from host to client?


Check if the “Shared Clipboard” feature is disabled. It should be somewhere around Settings > General > Advanced. You can set it to bidirectional or any other setting you need.
