2) Open any Android software and copy some text.

3) Open some other native Sailfish app than the one you used in step 1 and paste the text.

Expected Outcome:

I guess this is not a bug really because of the two different environments, but is a feature which would be really useful!

Same issue, with the ownCloud Android App: the share link of a file or folder does not end up in the Sailfish clipboard :(

Hi, your test shows us that clipboard is not full-duplex.

I just test and I can say that clipboard from Salifish to Andro works, but Andro to Sailfish doesn't. I noticed that paste command in andro works because andro calls native keyboard and paste command is done by sailfish keyboard itself. Copy/Cut commands in andro app are ineffective (clipboard not updated). It seems that andro clipboard is not managed at Sailfish level.

I think it requires a development in Alien Dalvik app to have a full-duplex clipboard.
