Hi, this may sound a bit all over the place but i need a bit of help, when for example i take the rectangle tool and make a black rectangle it doesnt make its own layer so if i do another one and try move one it will move the two of them and i cant figure out how to fix it.. Thanks in advance

My guess is you have the rectangle tool set to "Pixels" instead of "Shape" in the tool options bar.
