nik collection not applying as separate layer


I’m using nik 4 on photoshop 22. When I go into color efex 4 and apply the filter, it doesn’t seem to apply the filter on my layer. Instead I have to go back into the filter menu and then select “color efex pro” which is now at the top of the menu and then it will apply itself on the layer. However even then, the application is on the same layer instead of what it used to do which was apply the adjustments as a separate layer.

does anyone have any suggestions? thanks.
