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.

A file name may be used 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.

Originally the attribute type was a string but this changed to file type. That made it easier to change fill to an arbitrary image file in the Displayed Attributes table. The value of $Fill is thus file path, e.g. ~/Pictures/Projects/logo.jpg.
