Hi, i would like to have the ability to color code folders and individual views in the view map and also in the layout book. In this way one can have ther 1:50 plans in one color, 1:100 in other, and so on, same for land work etc. I would find this useful specially for cloned folders which copies the names of all the views but its my understanding that, as of now, it is very bad practice trying to change its names or worse, erasing them. It would be good for highlighting unused views ( the ability to hide or erasing them would be better though). The same goes for the layout book, specially if one handles many diferent types of plans. thanks!

I believe this is an essential. I have several complex projects with several scales and extreme detail.
It would be great to add some color to highlight them.
