The copy paste function is intermittent. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Sometimes it can be fixed by randomly changing settings in preferences:pasteboard. And I mean random. Sometimes it works if I just disable syncing altogether. Sometimes it works with everything checked. Or with random changes. Sometimes I can’t get it to work and have to quit xquartz and restart, a major time waste.
This can be between xquartz and, for instance, Pages or MSOffice apps. Or within XQuartz itself.
