In my experience, when using "paste as new" you get the selected layer only.
If you want more then the selected layer, or all the layers, merge the
layers you're interested in, or merge all layers, or flatten image. Then copy
and paste as new. Then undo whatever it is you did to the first image to
arrive back to it's original condition, if you care to.
