Add Fill Color to Text Box

Five years ago Add Fill Color to Text Box was posted and as of today, the only way to incorporate this into a workflow is to use a call out.  This workaround is simply not intuitive - text boxes in apps typically contain box fill.  This is needed in a text box for many reasons, including visibility.  
A call out box can be crafted to be a rectangle  and appear like a text box, but then the text format options are lost.
Seems like a full-function text box with fill to the box would be preferred.

I am not sure what is so difficult about this feature to be added as a property on the Text tool.  In my search...this looks like a lot of people want it and it has been an issue for YEARS!  Come one....why can't we get this simple request?
