identifying scrivener objects

I never got the hang of Scrivener 1, giving it another go. This is a feature request.

It’d help me figure things out if I knew what they were (especially on the left-hand schema pane);
if I right-click something I’d like to know what Scrivener calls it, eg. folder, text item, etc so I can search for appropriate help.
Just a little text string at the top of the menu, or whatever so I know what sort of object I’m interacting with, maybe a link to the help index…

I’m trying to turn the Recipe template into a catalog (a text database, more or less) and I’m trying to figure out the hierarchy where organization would end and metainfo and repeating item pages begin.
