The background color of these elements can be set to any color. By default, there is no background color set. When a background color is selected this can not be un-selected. The only thing you can do to change it back is to change the color to transparent.
With text elements, the color can be behind the text only, or as wide as the entire element. This can be set by switching the Full-width switch.

The border option allows you to create a full border or a border on specific sides of your element. All sides at once is selected by default, which means that when you increase the Border thickness, the same amount of border will appear on all sides at the same time.
When All sides at once is deselected, the option to increase the amount of the border for each side will appear. It is also possible to add more than one border. Every border will have the same color that is selected at the Border color picker.
