Border, padding and margin are defined in the property panel under the appearance section. All three types have an option for uniform or individual settings. Uniform defines the setting for all directions and individual allows settings the properties for all directions (top, bottom, left, right). The border settings also allow settings the color for each individual direction.

When using several menu objects on a sheet, ensure that all menus are defined identically for these settings. Otherwise, one menu could hide a bar and another could show this bar again, depending on which menu object is loaded as last one by Sense.
