It would be cool if ReadCube could...

Associate a color with a list when viewing articles in my library

I want to assign a color code to my lists, and then view color tagged articles in my library. I should also be able to see if an article belongs to more than one list.

    Nice idea! This would make clear at a glance which articles are in which list(s). Showing articles belonging to multiple lists would seem problematic though. Should be combined with having set of lists given in the article info pane.

    I am often working on multiple projects. I would like to assign a color to each list, so selecting the relevant article would be easier. The article titles could have a color tint (background) indicating what list they're in. Thanks!

    This would be wonderful, as well as listing what journal(s) it was published under in the infobox/library screen

    Yes. Indicating which lists an article belongs to would be a great improvement.

    Yes, this is exactly what I would like to have. And to spin it further - it would be nice to give an articles a couple of customer tags (keywords) to enable a fast finding within lists and cross lists. This accomanied with a sort function (f.e. view all articles highlighted in red only, having this keyword, etc.) would be great.

    I was thinking to something different and closer from the original idea of this idea (that has been modified since its submission): either indicate in Info to which lists this paper belongs, either create a new tab after Info and Cite, called Lists where would be indicated the lists where this paper is present.
    I join two illustrations for this idea:
    - in the Info part:
    - in a new tab:

    Yes, that's the idea I was looking for too. Once you have a large number of references in the system, it becomes difficulte to identify which lists contain that reference.

    Hi Lucas,

    I don't know whether this what Patricio requested but what you describes is exactly what I need. So it'd be great to implement this in Readcube. Thanks for a great software. I have tested a lot of different softwares before comitting to Readcube and I am very happy with my decision.
