How to set the clipboard sharing mode to one-way only.

hello everyone

I noticed that VMware's clipboard sharing is a two-way sharing, but because I often run dangerous software in the virtual machine, I don't want the machine inside the virtual machine to read my host's clipboard. But I need the host to read the clipboard inside the virtual machine.

I tried to turn off the "client isolation - enable copy and paste" option, but it will also prevent the host from reading the clipboard inside the virtual machine. I don't want to do this.

I tried to add "isolation.tools.paste.disable = true" to the .vmx file of the virtual machine, but it didn't work.

What should I do? Thank you for your reply.
