How to Copy, Cut, and Paste Assets in a Workspace

When using a workspace, copy, cut, and paste works the same way on a Mac or PC via keyboard shortcuts or right-click menus using the system clipboard. You can copy, cut, and paste large files or even make group selections from a workspace. You may also copy the system clipboard and paste it into an external tool.

The copied clipboard content resides in the same cloud as your Organization’s workspaces. Additionally, you can copy and paste assets both in the same workspace and across different workspaces.

Note: You can copy and paste assets in a workspace only if your workspace role includes download privileges. The Viewer or Commenter role cannot copy, cut, or paste content. Check out Workspace Roles for more information.
