The Guacamole clipboard in the menu/sidebar has been behaving oddly since GUACAMOLE-55. I suspect this has to do with the switch to using a "content-editable" div, rather than a traditional textarea.
Thus far, I have noticed the following:
- Focus is unexpectedly given to the clipboard by default on mobile devices, causing the keyboard to open when the screen is tapped. While this sounds like it might be a good thing, mobile on-screen keyboards do not fire traditional keyboard events, so this does not actually work. Further, dismissing the keyboard is difficult if not impossible; it just keeps opening disruptively.
- When rich text is pasted within the clipboard, formatting is sometimes maintained even though the current intent of the clipboard field is that formatting should be stripped.
- Spaces and newlines are not handled consistently. Spaces are sometimes pasted within the remote desktop as non-breaking spaces, while newlines are sometimes dropped entirely.
It may be worth considering going back to a textarea for the sake of stability, and re-opening GUACAMOLE-55 for a different release.
