+.noVNC clipboard
+You can enable the noVNC clipboard by setting `clipboard` to 1.
+# qm set <vmid> -vga <displaytype>,clipboard=1
+In order to use the clipboard feature, you must first install the
+spice guest tools. On Debian-based distributions, this can be achieved
+by installing `spice-vdagent`.
+Once you have installed the spice guest tools, you can use the clipboard
+function in the noVNC console. However, if you're using SPICE, virtio or virgl,
+you'll need to choose which clipboard to use. This is because the
+default *SPICE* clipboard will be replaced by the *noVNC* clipboard,
+if `clipboard` is set to 1.
