Here’s how one user described the issue on Teamviewer Community forums:

We just bought enterprise, and it’s a deal breaker if we can’t copy and paste from the Windows 10 host into the TV window.
I’ve tried with Sync clipboards checked, and unchecked. I’ve restarted TV multiple times with both options.
It does not work.
