 9.1.0, 9.3.0

Designates a source image for background textures for map notes and adornments.

The $Fill is normally set via the Appearance/Interior Inspector's Texture setting.

The opacity of the fill texture can be controlled by the $FillOpacity attribute.

Additional images may be placed in the custom fills folder of the Application Support folder.

From v9.1.0, Tinderbox now accepts a file name with or without an extension. If the user file folder contains the file "TestFill.png", then setting $Fill to "TestFill" or to "TestFill.png" is equivalent.

From v9.3.0, the attribute type changed from string to file type. This makes it easier to change fill to an arbitrary image file in the Displayed Attributes table. The value of $Fill may now be a file path, e.g. ~/Pictures/Projects/logo.jpg.
