I am using Pro 2.3.2. I am trying to copy line geometry from one feature class into a new, empty feature class. I successfully select the geometry I wish to copy and when I attempt to copy it into the new feature class, I get the error message that "There are no appropriate templates".
In the Manage Templates pane, there is very definitely a template for the destination feature class. I've even tried deleting and re-creating the template but this does not work.
Always, always "There are no appropriate templates".
I have resorted to working back in 10.6 in order to not be so frustrated by something so simple that won't work. I've referenced thread after thread I've found online about this - I've followed YouTube videos on how to do this everything I can think of and still "There are no appropriate templates".
At this point I see no reason to continue using Pro nor even bothering to transition to fully working in the platform.
I tried to reproduce, but so far, I can't. This seems like it could be data-specific. Are you able to share some details about the data here? If not, can you please reach out to Esri Technical Support to show them? We'd like to get to the bottom of this error.
Questions I have:
Thanks for any further info to help us track it down.
Thank you for your reply.
Source data is a connected Oracle SDE corporate database that cannot be edited.
Destination feature class is in a local project file geodatabase and editing is enabled.
I have created a feature template which I confirm in the Manage Templates pane. I even went through the steps of deleting the feature template in this pane and then re-creating the template.
The source feature class is the ONLY SELECTABLE layer.
Field data types include:
Workflow is identical to what you posted EXCEPT
5. The Paste Special dialog opens and there is a brief "pause" and popup window entitled PASTE SPECIAL FEATURES opens which says "There are no appropriate templates."
This happens using shortcut keys Ctrl-C / Ctrl-Alt-V or by clicking on the Copy / Paste / Paste Special menu items.
I very much appreciate your kind assistance.
In 2.5, the upcoming release of ArcGIS Pro, you shouldn't be required to open the Create Features pane first when pasting from a non-editable source; however, should you see the issue after 2.5 is released, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Scott, we are using 2.9 and one of my employees is still running into this issue. It's strange bc I am working on the same database and not getting any such error so it's hard for me to troubleshoot it for her. I had her create a temp polyline feature class and when she did that it seemed to shock the system(for a lack of better words) into recognizing that there were actually "appropriate templates" for her to paste into but that was only a temporary workaround. Has there been any more feedback on this issue? I can't find much out there about this.
