This menu allows you to quickly customise the background colour and/or image of the currently selected panel.
It's used to explain the background image attachment setting near the bottom of the page
These settings control the background colour of the panel:
To select a custom colour, choose the Select... option to launch the Colour Picker.
You can also choose from one of the three default colours: Black, White or Transparent.
