Layer Label Color

I would love the ability to set a background color in the layer list. I’d like to be able to set this on an individual layer or group of layers.

I often have trouble finding important groups of layers. I’ve resorted to using emojis which helps. But imagine that we could color the background color of the label.

I’d also like to edit the label name so that in my document “Blue” would represent to my developers that it’s grids.


Coloring the name of the layers (either the text or its background), with a gradient (the higher the level, the more staturated the color) would make easy to categorize the layers/groups/frames in a big workspace.

We could signal headers/footers inside a frame ; signal a variation on a specific frame ; signal before/after frames ; etc.
