How do I stop a pasted part in an assembly from snapping to the origin initially?

I'm using SW 2012 and when I paste a new part into an exisiting assembly the newly pasted part alwasy seems to snap to the assembly origin rather than the last place where I left clicked my mouse. Any way to change this? It is a bit of a hassle as the origin is typically centered in an object and the pasted object is introduced by being covered up.

 

To clarify I can move the part from the origin as it has no mates but I typically have to turn a part transparent so I can locate and click on the new part.

 

*EDIT*

TO paste a part in I am using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+V

 

Thanks all
