Xavier, can the banknote shape be auto set to rectangular?

And then perhaps have it so we can change it for the few notes that are not rectangular? This saves a step for the many new contributors.
I do think this would help. So many are rectangular.

I found a couple emergency banknotes from Indian princely states to be round (and one to be octagonal), but other than those... all rectangles.
Why don't you make an drop-down menu for that? So that all the basic shape pre put we just have to select it.

​If you find a few oddballs it would be hard to put it in, and that would require an update to the catalog to put in. I think it should be auto-set to rectangular so I don't have to type it in every time. But if you do find a weird oddball shape, you can then edit it in.

Hello,
The shape has been changed to a dropdown list instead of a free text (see also here). This ensures consistency, no typo and easier translation. It's also possible to select "Other" and add more details.
And the option "rectangular" is preselected. :)
