With the latest update, is anyone else experiencing issues with copying features from one layer to another, or copying features within attribute tables. I am noticing that the keyboard shortcuts for copy and pasting features seem to be causing issues for me.


Since QGIS 3.14, you need to left click on the map canvas( with selected features) and then do the CTRL+C (copy).

The scope of the ctrl+c has been limited to avoid interference with panels.

    Thanks for the solution. I do feel the previous behaviour was working well enough and its unfortunate that this change was pushed through. I am sure there were valid reasons though. – MapInfoNewbie Jun 27 '20 at 1:47

Left click and hold on the selected feature to ctrl-c Copy. Left click and hold on the canvas to ctrl-v Paste.

This can be a useful feature. It is possible to have a feature in the clipboard when trying to paste into the attribute table. It should make copy paste function better with QT tables too.
