I'm trying to move two digitized layers, one containing points, the other polygons to a different location at the same time. QGIS doens't seem to allow this. Even if I select both layers and features it will only move one (the one I last selected, so which ever feature is shown in editor)

I know ArcGIS allows multiple layers to be moved at once, just with the moving tool or with the spatial adjusment. I haven't been able to reproduce this in QGIS. Thanks for any help!

AFAIK QGIS does not support editing of multiple layers for now. – SS_Rebelious Apr 5 '13 at 14:39
that's too bad. Thanks for the awnser anyway. – Tessa Beukelaar Apr 9 '13 at 13:41

It's not possible to edit more than one layer now.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

This does not provide an answer to the question. Once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post; instead, provide answers that don't require clarification from the asker. - From Review – Kersten Jul 22 at 14:28
