If you'll follow the screenshots below you'll be able to copy / cut features from one layer and to paste / move them to another layer:

This is how the first layer looks:

Going back to the first layer and selecting some features:

Select Copy or Cut from the Edit menu if you want to duplicate or move existing features into another layer:

Select the other layer:

enter image description here

Perform the paste operation:

Here's the expected result (the features from the first layers are duplicated or moved into the second layer):

  • Make sure that the target layer has the attribute fields you want to preserve for the copied objects. – AndreJ Mar 19 '14 at 10:15

  • Thanks for the good answer. Remember that the layer you want to paste into must be toggled for editing. (Took me a couple of goes to work that out!). – EcologyTom Nov 9 '16 at 20:39
