Specifies the colour of a note in map view.
The same colour is used in the outline of note icons in Outline/Explorer views and element outlines in TreeMap/Chart views.
The default is '7'.
Adornments have a different default: 'blue'. Adornments also have the extra option of setting 'transparent' such that neither body or border colour are drawn.
There is no way to seed this value at app level, e.g. via user configuration files. Tinderbox saved colour schemes also do not save or set the $Color attribute.
Accent colour is provided by $AccentColor.
$Color can be set via the Appearance Inspector ▸ Interior tab, 'Color' controls.
