Hi, there seems to be good options for working with triangle "objects" but triangle layers are weirdly difficult!

What's the quickest/best way to make a triangular shaped layer? For example just a plain colour unlit triangle?

Similarly it seems like there should be a way to "draw" a 2d shape by specifying a list of points.

There are a few ways to make a triangular-shaped layer:

Make Quad Layer with a solid color image, affine mapping, and with 2 of the points set to the same position

Make Text Layer with text "▲"

Make Image Layer with an image of a triangle.

The first two are shown in the attached example.
