MacOS guest supports text copy/past, but not for file. please using drag/drop or shared folder for file sharing between host and guest.
I cannot use any method of copy/paste or drag/drop. My only option is to connect to a shared server for all sharing. That's not what I'm looking for. I want to move content between my VM and my host machine.
As I known, it doesn't support copy&paste files, only text can be copy&paste between guest and host for macOS VM.
But it supports drag&drop.
Could you try to transfer files between the host OS and guest OS by drag&drop?
BTW, to dray&drop file from host to guest, you need to allow the "vmware-tools-daemon" in System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy -> Accessibility in the macOS10.14 guest.
