It is quite a frequent occurrence that I want the data I'm about to add to a new shapefile, to have all the same attribute fields as one I created in a previous project.
For example, I might have previously mapped all the fence lines in a field and recorded their attributes - fence type, condition, wire, length, height, etc.
I then want to produce the same sort of survey for a different client. I just want my 'fence' layer to look exactly the same as the 'fence' layer on the previous project, same style, same labels, and same fields, but the only thing I can save seems to be the style.
Could anyone help with the best way to do this?
