Billboarding for Rectangles

Hello, 
I would like to use billboarding on Rectangles but there doesn't seem to be an option for it. Can this be a feature on Rectangles? Or are we expected to use another shape with billboarding like a Line as a substitute?

possibly yeah! what's the use case you have for billboarded rectangles? and do you mean billboarding the entire rectangle to face you, similar to the billboarded disc, or billboarding the individual lines in a rectangle, so it doesn't rotate the actual rectangle?

I'm making an object that displays content using a mix of Lines, Discs, and Rectangles (all solid) that always faces the player. Since Rectangles don't have billboarding I'm getting around this by making the whole object rotate towards the camera, which isn't as smooth as I would like it to be. I would like billboarding similar to the disc, where it billboards the entire rectangle.
