It seems really weird that paint and fill layers currently share exactly the same display icon in the layers palette. These are fundamentally different types of layers, so they need to have clearly identifiable different icons so that artists can see at a glance what type of layer it is. Currently, SFAIK, the ONLY way to tell the difference is to click on the layer and look to see whether or not the the paint tools are disabled. Really?

You can enable the "simplified thumbnails" option in the settings. This will change the look of the icons to a paint brush for paint layers and a material ball for fill layers.

That's only a half measure, since I want to see what the material is at a glance as well, which I would not be able to do using this method.

Does your fill layer not contain the small bucket icon in the corner? This is v8.1.2 and the middle layer is a fill layer
