However, if the spreadsheet is used for viewing data (and not entering or modifying) you could make a new spreadsheet for each user, and use importRange from the "master" spreadsheet in each copy's "A1" cell.

It looks like this issue is due to a bug in the new Google Sheets, but you can use this simple script as a workaround. In your sheet, go to Tools > Script Editor.

The reason for this is that, for a number of security reasons, browsers have limited capability to interact with the operating system's clipboard. If you think about it, this makes sense as the content within a browser window/tab runs as an isolated sandboxed environment to prevent possible malicious interaction with the OS. As such, alternatives have to ...

Google Drive hosted files are not being crawled just because they are public files. The URL of the each file should be included in a website that is being crawled or should be submitted directly to be indexed.
