Selection with Blank background

When I select part of an image and copy it (Ctrl J) to a new layer, it appears in the new layer with a white background instead of a transparent one. It used to provide a transparent background. I must have changed something, but I don't know what. I am using Elements 14.

I nthe layer panel, when you make a new layer, you typically, by default, will see the "little squares" to indicate it's a transpatent level.

But what if the "little squares" are not there - as is the case with the
image in question.

Thanks for your help.

I have discovered the problem. I went into Edit Preferences Transparency
and set the Grid SIze to small . It had been set to None - which is
effectively white. I don't know how that happened, but it is sorted now.
Thanks.

I forced myself once to it set to "none" once for about a week-- I hated it that way.
