A setting to make new layers go downwards

Hello, I really would love a setting that would make the new layers, freshly duplicated layers, etc, appear downwards - on the bottom of the list if nothing is selected or underneath the currently selected layer. In other words, to change the general direction of layer stacking - to go from top to bottom, instead of bottom to top only, as of now.

This is very logical, isn’t it? We create pages in figma and they go from top to bottom, most designs are created from top to bottom, most content flows from top to bottom. Then why do layers go freaking upwards? :smile:

Thanks for sharing this. I moved it to the product feedback category so you and others can vote and add additional context.
