I know there are a lot of things lacking from the windows version compared with Scrivener 2 for Mac, but I don't really care that much about anything else.

How hard is it to make it so we can change our icons. :( It makes everything harder when I can't colour code my folders. :(

Everything that is currently in the Mac version will be coming to Windows - it's all planned, it's just that the Mac version is several years older than the Windows version and so it has to play catch up. There's no need to post asking for Mac features to come to Windows, because they're already on the to-do list - and while it may seem like a small thing, please consider that *everyone* has their small tiny thing which they absolutely must have now, and they're all different.

In the meantime, you can use Labels to colour code things - assign a label to a document or folder then go to View > Show Label Colour In > Icons (Or Binder, but I prefer to just colour the icons - binder will block the background of the binder and I find that gets distracting).

That is actually extremely helpful.
I'm not even that worried any more. I searched the forums (and then google) to see if anyone had asked how to do something like that, but I only ever found things about custom labelling on MAC, and then when I searched it for the windows version I only ever got that you couldn't do it.
If I'd known I could do that I wouldn't have even posted a suggestion/wishlist in the first place. haha.
Thanks.
