Also, there is a way to define your own shapes.  But, I don't think Rick has officially published some instructions for that yet.

No, there isn't actually a way to do this just yet.

Make sure the height is 86.6% of the width*. Rick, I came across a bug with the shapes tool (triangle):

I drew a triangle on a zoomed out canvas (1100x1100px) while holding down shift. I set the shape to 1001x1001, then when I resized only the vertical size, the horizontal size dropped by 1 pixel. I tried this on a canvas when zoomed to 100% but the error didn't occur. The same error happened with a square, as in the above image.

 

*Here's the maths if you want to double check

cos(90-60)=h/w

h=w*cos(90-60)

h=0.8660*w
