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
