Hi Rebecca, I also followed a tweet and landed here. Thank you for taking the time to write this. For some reason, even though the steps you have outlined are clear and they work as shown, the end result does not work for me: colors do not tint the labels in the document entries (even though I can assign colors of my choice to the existing labels or to new labels). Any ideas? Did you have to enable something in the Preferences? I cannot find a way to get the colors to show! Thanks again.

Rebecca, I found your post via a Scrivener tweet. Thanks--it was just what I needed to help me organize a YA WIP involving multiple points of view.

Hi Daphne, thanks for the question. This was my mistake. I skipped a step. Go to View=>Label Color=>Icons. That should get it to work. I'll make that change to the tutorial.

Anne, thanks so much for stopping by! I was a bit worried that it wasn't making sense (I'm not a technical writer), but I just wrote it as I was going through the process. So I guess it does make sense. I'll be doing these tutorials on regular basis. So please stop by or better yet subscribe via email and you can get them in your mailbox every week (among my other nonsense).
