Copy and Paste features between feature layers in ArcGIS Pro

Copy and paste using the clipboard—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop   

Seems pretty straightforward....but not?  


Two feature polygon layers, which have templates that display in the manage templates dialog box, and which have identical attribute table structures except for one field.  Copy the features from one layer and paste them into the other feature layer using ArcGIS Pro.... 

  • Zoom to the features to be copied and select them.  They are the only selection in the map.
  • On the Edit tab, choose Copy 

          result: "Copying selected features" box shows the copying is executed.

  • Paste Special from the Paste drop down or using CTRL-ALT-V

          either way, same result: "Paste Special Features" box appears and says  ?There are no appropriate templates.


This is so basic, it has to be user error, what am I missing?
