I've just tried to create a palette in v6, it is much harder than it
was in v5- is there a reason I can no longer "create a palette" from
the edit menu, and then "generate from selection"?  Anyway, I figured
out the tedious way to do it v6, but it won't create buttons I want:

CreatePalette[{PasteButton[a^2], PasteButton[b^2],
   PasteButton[a^3], PasteButton[b^3],
   PasteButton[(1 - a)], PasteButton[(1 - b)],
   PasteButton[(1 - a)^2], PasteButton[(1 - b)^2],
   PasteButton[(1 - a)^3], PasteButton[(1 - b)^3]

The parentheses around "(1-a)" and "(1-b)" are never created when I
press the buttons, only "1-a" and "1-b", which is obviously a problem
if I'm multiplying things.  This defeats the purpose of the palette
saving keystrokes.  Is there anyway to do this?
