Does anyone know of a way in QGIS to copy a single feature in a layer and to paste it back into the same layer WITHOUT copying over the attributes?

  • So you only want to copy the geometry with an empty attribute table?

    If these features haven't the same attributes in layer structure that QGIS will copy objects with empty attributes.

You can copy your features in an intermediate table which have no fields . Then you copy this result to your destination table. You will have geometry but no attributes.

    This does work. Using a temporary scratch layer as the intermediate step. Simple and effective. Thanks
