small cosmetic suggestion

This really is a small thing. I like to use label colors to keep track of what I need to do in the binder. I wish that the color ‘balloons’ that cover labeled text would not extend all the way to the edge of the binder frame, but sit only on the word itself. Again, a small thing, but somehow, in the aesthetic world of Scrivener, where I spend nearly all my time, it would make a difference. FWIW of course. Thanks.

Hi Mortimer

Have you tried selecting:
view > use label colour in > icons

…and deselecting:
view > use label colour in > binder

I appreciate that this doesn’t highlight the text, but it does give a fairly clean colour highlighting system— and you can choose your own colours, of course.

Might be closer to what you want.

Best wishes
