    I'm running Parallels 15 and have reinstalled the latest parallels tools software in the guest (15.1.2.47123).

    I am *not* running X, nor do I intend to... I just want a dev system I can access via the console / CLI.

    However, I don't think it's too much to ask to cut-and-paste between the guest and the host.

    Currently, I cannot select text in the Ubuntu console (never mind copy it), and when I try to paste text *into* Ubuntu, all I get is a '^V' pasted into the console.

    Should this really be that difficult?

    Hi, please change the keyboard settings into "don't optimize for games"( on virtual machine configuration > Hardware > Mouse and keyboard > Keyboard > "don't optimize for games") and check In PD Preferences > Shortcuts enable the needed shortcut(cmd + V).

    Both those settings were already set to "Don't optimize for games" and the Command-V shortcut was enabled and mapped to Control-V on Linux.

    ....using the Command-V shortcut just sends a Control-V to the console, instead of pasting any data to the guest.

    Same problem here, it's disappointing, fortunately you can connect with ssh

    Is copy/paste ever possible in a tty console?
