Why not let color labels affect everything by default?

When I use color labels, I generally want to be able to see them. I don’t imagine this is uncommon. But the current default setting for Scrivener (2.7) turns them all off. For every project, I have to separately go into View > Use Color Label In and set which of the functions I want to turn on. It’s nice to have the option to be able to turn those off sometimes, but why not let color labels affect everything by default? That way people are also more likely to discover how label colors work, and they can always uncheck the options when they don’t want them. Even better: perhaps this could also be an option in the Preferences to change globally. (Or is it already there, and I’ve missed it?)

I don’t know if it’s true that the majority of users would want them on by default - I certainly wouldn’t. I like using labels, but I find them distracting in the binder, outliner and corkboard except in certain circumstances; then I turn them on.

Your best approach would be to create your own template project (using Save as Template) with all of these turned on, and then use that template whenever you create a new project.

Hope that helps.
All the best,

I’m with KB on this. I use label colouring to highlight things. I stick with the default he has set and only change it when there is a reason to do so—i.e. I want to highlight something to myself for later attention.
