Feature request #15178
Copy a polygone or a line to a point layer should create features corresponding to vertices

Copying a polygon and pasting it to a line layer creates a closed line from the polygon border. And vice-versa when copying a line to a polygon layer.
However, copying such geometries to a point layer generates an error message.
Might be nice to have it possible, generating a multipoint feature from vertices of the copied feature.

good point! I wasn't clear in my description (will fix it): i was expecting a multipoint feature which parts are vertices of the line or polygon. which is coherent with the current behavior: a polygon with ring creates a multiline feature.
And yes, point layer can have multipoint features.
