After pasting an object I make sure only one is selected, but both the original and the copy move together. I can enter edit mode and move one but they remain joined and ctrl+p to separate does not work. I'm not sure what has changed but I used to be able to copy an object and paste it as an entirely separate object.

    $\begingroup$ I think you might be duplicating objects in edit mode instead of object mode. $\endgroup$ – AshKB Nov 25 '18 at 23:31

When you duplicate objects be sure you are in object mode. If you are in edit mode they may conjoin and be made a single object. I have trouble with this too.
