Be able to cancel Send Clipboard Keystrokes command

kuuser 4 years ago updated by Alex Heylin 9 hours ago 5

I'm not sure if this is a feature request or bug report so I'll post it in both. If your clipboard has a lot of text (like you just copied an email's contents) and you think you're pasting a password when it actually is the keystrokes, it will keep pasting the keystrokes even after Windows tells you the password is incorrect and try again, and will persist even if you disconnect and reconnect to the Screenconnect session, making it impossible to connect to the computer until it finishes emptying the long clipboard into the multiple password prompts. It would be nice to be able to cancel the sending of the clipboard, or not continue pasting after closing and reopening the session.

This been very problematic on a number of occasions. Is there any update here or even a workaround?

Even a warning like "Your clipboard contains 150000 characters. Are you sure you want to send?" would go a long way.

I've been stung with this multiple times because my stupid brain clicks send clipboard instead of send C-A-D and SC promptly starts dumping the entire contents of the clipboard by which time I've clicked send C-A-D so it keeps dumping it all into the password field which blocks you from logging in. Only solution I've found is restart the SC service on the remote machine.
