The creation of a split/drop down button for shapes has been suggested in bug

This argument was discussed in bug 84350 as well and having a constantly
visible toolbar or sidebar when you need to add multiple different shapes has
an advantage over a split/drop-down button.

The design team discussed last week about this sidebar panel and Kendy
suggested that the sidebar tab also have the ability to set the shape's area
and border colors from the sidebar, which is possible to set in the line and
filling toolbar before a shape is drawn. So it would be useful to copy the
'fill' entry from the area properties section and the 'width' and 'color'
entries from the line properties section, and these entries would only effect
newly drawn shapes.
