Multiple highlight colors

Since it's impossible to change the color of notes individually, I thought it could be handy to have multiple colors for highlighting. That way, I could add "Important" highlighted in red at the start of my note to see it more easily, or other colors for multiple purposes.

editing complexity:easy text-formatting

Great idea, thank you!

I have been wondering why there is no multiple colors for highlighting or multiple colors for texts.

Basic colors: Red, Yellow, Green and Blue can be very useful,

BUT only if we have an ability to create a custom Key-Maping for

shortcutting it.

If it will be implemented only throught the contect menu (3 clicks to go) it will be not very handy.


Maybe we could get a simple but quick enhancement. Hitting CTRL+H a second time applies a second color? (So the highlight feature would circle through primary color -> secondary Color -> no highlight).

This feature seems to be useful for some - but not all users - so we should try to Keep the solution simple. 

Just some thoughts I wanted to share :-)

Thanks for the idea Chris! It's nice that it could be implemented quickly, but in general I'd like to avoid such hidden features and do things properly. CN already has a ton of hidden features and it doesn't help in gaining popularity;)
