Hi José,
when you paste audio into a selected track, where it goes depends on whether a 
time range is selected. In your case there will be a time range selected after 
you copied the audio.
1. If there is no time range selected, then the audio is pasted starting at the 
cursor. If you've got an empty track, then you can move the cursor to time zero 
either by pressing Home, or by pressing J, which moves the cursor to the start 
of the audio in the selected track.
2. If a time range is selected, then the selected audio, which is defined by 
the selected time range and the selected track, is replaced by the pasted 
audio. This may be what's happening in the case you describe.

Note, to move the cursor to the end of the audio in a selected track (or 
tracks), press K.

Hi to all
Imagine a situation as follows:
A track of ten minutes long, in which I have created  labeled zones.
The first is from 2 minutes to 4, and the other from 6minutes to 8.
I am interested in joining this two zones in a new track  so that I can listen 
my two zones from the point zero of my new track in a seamless way. 
I have tried cutting and pasting, but the sound do not start from the  point 
zero, it does from the point  2 minutes, where my labeled zone does. 
How could I solve this problem?

Thank you in advance and sorry for my English.
