Texture - use this option to fill the inner part of the shape with some texture taken from the presets or from any supported image from your computer hard disk drive.
When you select the Solid color fill type the program will let you choose the color that will be used to fill an object or text. The Color window will open to let you select the color. Click the Define Custom Colors button to see all available settings:
