color coding files in projects

Hi, I’m sorry if this has been discussed before, but I couldn’t find it in the forum subjects.
I have one project file for my book reviews and am able to choose “in progress” or final draft" colors in General Meta Data and the corresponding book review shows up in the binder highlighted with that particular color, purple for “in progress”, green for “published.”

I am unable to accomplish this in another project titled Essays in Progress. I would like to have the draft colors show up in the binder, but even though I have chosen these in the General Meta Data section they do not show up in the binder.

I hope this makes sense, and I hope someone has the solution.

Hi Sarah,

You just need to go to View > Use Label Color In and tick “Binder”.

Hope that helps!

All the best,

Thanks, Keith. Duh! Now I feel really stupid. But it worked like a charm. :unamused:

No need to feel stupid, it’s easily missed! Glad it helped.

All the best,
