Trying to copy selected features from one layer and paste into another layer.  When doing this, i follow the proper steps: 1. go in edit mode of item trying to copy. 2. select features i wish to copy. 3. click the copy button. 4. click the paste button.  At this point the only layer i am able to copy to is the same layer that i'm in.  I have many more layers available with my map, why am i unable to select a different layer.  My coordinate zones match and there is no errors occurring.  see attached...

trying to add some data that i exported as a .shp from Civil 3d and add it to my water main layer in arc-map.  this is the only layer that is available and that is the layer i brought it in on from civil 3d, i need to copy to my Water Mains layer.

 

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Arcmap 10.3
