So, you're not happy with the overall "Drabness" of Lion"? Think it's too utilitarian? Here's my own, personal, attempt at bringing some color back to Lion. It involves swapping some resource files, but as the Director of Technical Support here, I can guarantee it won't mess up anything with your notes. First, download this file: https://support.ever... ... bafe98965b Then: Quit Evernote from File->Quit and from the MenuBar. Open Finder, Hit Command+Shift+G and enter the following path: /Applications/Evernote.app/Contents/ Right-click the "Resources" directory and select "Copy", then Paste it to your desktop (you're backing it up). Then, from Applications/Evernote.app/Contents, click into Resources. Open the downloaded ColoredIcons.zip file, and Cmd+A to highlight all the files within, then drag them into the Resources directory. "Replace" everything there. Restart Evernote and color has returned to the left-hand pane. If anyone else has some spare time, or the desire, to bring other icons over, I'll be happy to update this file.
