 the Web Console to the selected serial port. A configured display 'memory'
 setting will be ignored in that case.
+You can enable the noVNC clipboard by setting 'clipboard' to 1.
+To use this, you need to install and enable spice-vdagent on the VM Guest: 
+`apt install spice-vdagent`
+Doing this will give you the ability to use the clipboard button of the novnc
+console. However, when using SPICE, you have to decide which clipboard you want
+to use, because the default SPICE clipboard implementation will be replaced by
+the qemu-vdagent implementation, which is used by noVNC. 
+This means you cannot simply copy and paste into a SPICE session and instead 
+need to use the noVNC button, when using SPICE with noVNC-clipboard.
