By copying objects from one vectorlayer to another should take care of different KBS of the layers if they vary (e.g. if On-The-Fly-Projection is used).
Right now the copy/patse doesn't work as expected, not taking care of that, because copy/paste is possible, but produces wrong results in those cases.
#4 Updated by Giovanni Manghi about 12 years ago
For what I see now on the user manual (tip 21 on page 58 of the qgis 1.1 manual) it seems that when pasting a feature from a layer with a different projection, qgis should reproject it (but with an advice of possibly have the geometry of the pasted layer changed), so the bug should be confirmed.
Please check it and correct me if I'm wrong, because it seems strange to me that a documented feature is not working the right way.
From the manual
CONGRUENCY OF PASTED FEATURES
If your source and destination layers use the same projection, then the pasted features will have geometry identical to the source layer. However if the destination layer is a different projection then QGIS cannot guarantee the geometry is identical. This is simply because there are small rounding-off errors involved when converting between projections.
