Is it possible to maintain position when pasting into a layer mask?

The question says it all I think.

When I paste into a layer mask, the pasted pixels re-orientate themselves into the centre of the image.

But I would like them to maintain the exact position they were in on the layer I copied them from.

Is this possible, and if so, how?

Answer

Use Paste-in-Place, Layer via Copy or Alt Drag

Use:

Copy in Place: Ctrl+Shift+V

Or

Layer via Copy Ctrl+J

*Both do the same thing with layers.

Copy Mask

Also, when copying one layer mask on to a new layer. Hold down Alt and drag to the new layer.
