+.noVNC clipboard
+You can enable the VNC clipboard by setting `vnc_clipboard` to 1.
+# qm set <vmid> -vga <displaytype>,vnc_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`. For other Operating Systems search for it
+in the offical repositories or see: https://www.spice-space.org/download.html
+Once you have installed the spice guest tools, you can use the clipboard
+function in the noVNC console panel. 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
+*VNC* clipboard, if `vnc_clipboard` is set to 1.
