Elements 9: "Paste into" doesn't create a new layer automatically.

Here's my question/problem. I had been using Photoshop 7 for years and switched to Elements 9 a few months ago. The transition has been OK except for one particular sequence I use everyday which goes as follows: using a pattern, I select an area of the pattern and 'paste into' the selection. In PS7, that action creates a new layer and puts the pasted image in it (good), but in Elements 9 it seems to put it right on the background with the original pattern (bad). I just can't seem to remember to create a new layer manually first, and I get so frustrated, I go back to PS7. The problem with that is that it now only runs on my one old XP computer.

Is there a bug fix for this? I'm about to do a demonstration of my techniques and have to take a windows7 laptop to the demonstration and am nervous I'm going to mess it up because I will forget that step that used to be automatic.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
