VMWare Fusion loses ability to copy/paste to host

Over the last few days Fusion has stopped allowing copy/paste between VM and host. It is a bit erratic. Sometimes working, sometimes not. Sometimes the workaround of pasting between Windows Notepad works, and allows a multi-step operation.
 
I have not changed any settings that I know of.
 
What would cause this/how can I fix?

It is. This is not the problem.

However, I read somewhere that a workaround might be to not have the VM automatically start when VMWare loads. Instead wait a minute. I tried this once, and after doing that, copy/paste is in fact working. This will need more testing however.

Hi there,

To be sure that copy/paste works fine you must have Vmware-tools installed.

Seems the "wait before starting the VM" that I mentioned does in fact solve the problem.
