    Paste button

    ArcGIS Pro command “Paste” (button “Paste” main command) pastes copied features to the same layer from which they were copied (makes duplicate features).

    ArcGIS Pro command “Paste Special” (button “Paste” sub command) pastes copied features to the specified layer, chosen from the Paste Special dialog box.

    To paste features to the same layer operation (to make duplicates) is necessary very rarely or never. Pasting features to another than source layer is more common operation. In addition, to paste features to the same layer is possible using “Paste Special” too.

    The suggestion – to modify “Paste” button. Remove “Paste Special” sub command from “Paste” button. Merge the functions “Paste” and “Paste Special” under common “Paste” button, which opens the same dialog box as existing Paste Special dialog box.

    Existing Paste function is incomprehensible,# without dialog box, not intuitive. The lack of the dialog box under Paste command makes it incomprehensible to use.
