With a nudge from Justin Trevino I figured how to do it:
Select the track into which you're going to paste the audio.
Listen to the track and hit [ (left bracket) to mark the place where you want
to start the insertion.
Stop playback and hit left arrow. This will move the end point to the start
point, thus creating a 0 length selection.
Hit control V to paste in your audio. Everything to the right of the start
point you created will be shifted to the right.

Sorry, it might help if I describe exactly how I’m doing the pasting:
I have some audio copied to the clipboard. I hit left bracket at the point in
the track where I want the pasted audio to start. I stop the track and hit
control V to paste in the material.
Now all I have is the audio before the paste and the pasted audio. Everything
else is gone.

Hi clever people,
The manual says that when I paste a piece of audio at a point selection it
should push the existing audio rightwards. I’m not getting this at all. When I
paste, everything after the paste is gone.
For example, it shortened a 5 minute track down to 20 seconds when I pasted a
10 second piece about 10 seconds into the track.
What am I doing wrong or missing?
