If you want the background of documents colored differently within *the editor*, as mentioned previously, you cannot currently do that. Editor background color applies to all documents.
If you want documents colored differently from within *a list of documents*, than you can do that in the Binder (label color/use label color in binder) (as broadsides mentioned) and also in the Outliner (label color/use label color in Outliner Rows).
In your reply to me earlier, it sounded like seeing the documents colored differently in the Outliner is closest to what you are looking for. If not, please clarify.

I'm not sure I understand the question.
Does "put the cursor in one of the scenes" mean "select the scene from the Binder or the Outliner"? Or does it mean "put the cursor in the Editor"?
Biff, have you run through the Tutorial?

Question: When scrolling or moving the cursor through documents merged in a Scrivenings pane, how one can identify which document the cursor is in, either by displaying its name, or by showing where it is located in the Binder or the Outliner?
Answer: The only thing available to you in the current Scrivener version is Reveal in Binder (Ctrl+Shift+8). This will reposition the Binder and highlight the document your cursor is in.
There is no comparable functionality for the Outliner, i.e., no Reveal in Outliner.
If I misunderstood your question, or if you have any others, please let me know.
