Using ArcMap 10.3, I'm trying to copy a feature I just created using Editor>Create Features, and paste it into the same layer several times. I click on the feature using the small Editor arrow, right-click, and select "copy" and then "paste".
The problem is that even though I only have the one feature selected, ArcMap copies and pastes the entire dataframe with all layers.
I went to Table of Contents and Listed by Selection, making my target layer the only selectable layer. That doesn't seem to make any difference; It still copies and pastes the entire dataframe with all layers. I don't know why.
I looked at this discussion, but it doesn't seem to be quite the same issue.: How to copy single polygon and paste multiple times to same layer in Arcmap 10?
