Question about Proxmox SPICE option for clipboard

We are using Proxmox VE (version 7.x, upgrade to 8.x is scheduled). Some VMs are virtualised desktop machines, and we would like to disable the clipboard between the SPICE client and the VM. Is there an option to do this? SPICE supports this according to their issue tracker. I can't find the option in the Proxmox configuration. Do I need to edit the VM configuration files manually?

Best regards,
