Strange Photoshop Behavior

I am trying to draw a simple, straight line without arrows and with "Shape" defined.  Oh, I can draw the line OK, but I am left with handles on each end. if I select most other tools, like the Move tool, the line then disappears.  If I Rasterize the layer, the line disappears and I thought that defining the line as a shape automatically created a raster layer. If, with the line with handles is created, I select the Type tool, I get a new layer and when I return to the line layer, there the line is, without handles and "permanent." I don't want to use that "workaround" whenever I want to draw a line.

Can anyone provide me with some guidance?
