While I have layer filter on using dialog, I want to add a new layer to this filter.
Normally you right chick and add layer simular to the highlight layer, however, you if layer filter are on, then layer1 is created.
Then you have to find this layer, and rename it.
I also can use the command prompt to created the layer, However, I want to create a layer name simular to the one in the filter, as if I index the layer. Example:C-topo-spot-existing-phase -1 New layer: C-topo-spot-existing-phase-2.

Solved! by neilyj. See the answer in context.
When in a current filter it will not create a new layer within that filter string. The following error message appears if in a filter.
Instead go to "All Layers" Create a new layer C-topo-spot-existing-phase-2 and return to the filter and the new layer should appear in the list of a filter *C-topo-spot-existing* or the likes.

I know exactly what you are talking about, I just ran into this a couple of hours ago.
In spite of the workarounds, the implementation of this feature is poor at best.
When you create a new layer, it should create the new layer, immediately put you into Rename mode, then after you have named it, apply the layer filter.
