New Here: Pin colours default to binder colours?

Is there a way to have new the pins on index cards (and the Journal Article type) default to match the binder Journal Article type?

Okay, just to clarify, pin colour is just whatever label is set for the document. It is merely another method for viewing that information, and can be changed by selecting a label for the document in the Inspector. To set the default label, choose “Label & Status Setup…” in the File menu. Click on “Journal Article” and then click the “Make default” button in the lower right. You should see it turn bold. Now any new documents created in the Binder will have this label attached.
