im learning digital art with photoshop and im having an issue with my vectors. whenever i create a vector line the vector is not associated with any layer, seen hidden, active or not. its just kinda there. the vector does not save and is lost when photoshop closes. any ideas how to fix this and make every new vector its own layer?

i am running photoshop CS5 on a laptop with a 2.0GHz i7, 8GB RAM and a GTX560. i am also using photoshop x64, could the issue be a 6 bit issue?
