Add detail to layout

when I add details to a layout, it defaults to the top view. I draw a rectangle around the part in the top view, and it gets put on the layout. But, if I select a different view to add, say, Front, when I go to the front window and try to draw a rectangle, it won’t draw one - still will only draw it in Top. However, it does create the Front view on the layout. Very confusing!
