Start drawing on layer above the currently selected layer

Hello, community. I have a frame with multiple layers. If I select a layer somewhere halfway down the stack of layers and then start to draw a shape, the shape is created on a new layer as the first child of the frame. I am expecting a new layer to be created above the currently selected layer and this is the behaviour when using the text tool.

Am I missing something - a modifier key?

Thanks in advance
