Now, if you know in advance you are going to be making a new layer out of what
you're pasting, you can save yourself time and headaches by selecting "Paste
As > New Layer" from the Edit menu, instead of the normal Paste.

want it to remain in place in the image, right-click on the floating layer and
select To New Layer.
