I was working with shape layers in photoshop CC 2018. I selected the ellipse tool and held down shift and alt which should create a circle with a centre at the point from where I started dragging , but instead, the cursor changes to the eyedropper tool. Can someone explain why is this happening ?

Press Alt + Shift after having started making the circle without releasing the mouse
