Options to color or otherwise call attention to particular notebooks

Idea

I find that when I'm looking for a particular notebook or stack I keep staring at the one I'm looking for but don't realize it.  I'd love the ability to somehow make a couple of them stand out from the rest.  Maybe font color, or the ability to chose the notebook icon from a small EN selection of approved icons? Thanks.

Did it on my Mac, by just using the standard Mac soft keyboard, emojis section. I copied the symbol into the notebook name.

It displays on Windows as well, but the icons look a bit different.

One downside: It will change the sorting sequence, since each icon is in fact a character and has its own sorting sequence.

As an alternative you can place notebooks in the "Shortcuts" section. Click on Notebooks to show the notebook view, then on the 3 dots at the end of the line. From the dropdown menu choose "Set as shortcut". It will show in the list of shortcuts in the left panel. You can jump to shortcut number 1-9 by typing ctrl / cmd - number , the number being from 1 to 9. This is as fast as it gets to go to a few notebooks or notes.

I'd like to switch to Mac at work, but company IT gets to choose the hardware...  :(

Just verified it works in windows EN.  I use the shortcuts for my frequent use notebooks, just trying to visually denote a few stacks/notebooks that I keep overlooking....thanks for the assist.

I can't tell you how many notes I have but in the wrong notebooks because the usablity alerting user to where notes are going is so poor.  Color to banner of note or background or even highlighting the notebook currently selected VERY obviously would be a GREAT way to do so and hopefully not a big ask?  Thanks...great idea.

This notebook color option would be great, as well as at the beginning of the note title. In my opinion, putting emoji like that is not so practical, you need to open a website, choose the emoji, copy it and then put it in the note or notebook.

I'm not sure whether you are working with Windows or MacOS.

In Windows Win+. opens the Emoji picker. Tap the one you require and... 😎🟥🔶🔴

No doubt other Mac users can say how to do the similar on a Mac.

With my Android device, the Emojis and a key on my keyboard.

Works even better on a Mac (there is a little helper keyboard in MacOS, that can show in the menu bar as an icon. It has an emoji tab. It can be activated in the Macs settings). The only problem my neat icons show like **** on Windows when I use that client. No experience on Android.
