IntelliJ IDEA 9 M1 - coloring editor tabs

A recent email from sales went out talking about new Maia features. How do you get to this one?

   * You can now see what particular index.html you're looking at with customizable colors for editor tabs

Thanks,
Jon

Hello Jon,

Use Settings | File Colors to configure the highlighting.

Thanks, Dmitry. I was looking for it to be in the context menu on the editor tab. Might be useful to have it available from the editor tab... especially if the "Enable Colors in Editor Tabs" is checked.

It would also be helpful to have it accept files outside the project root.
My current project is set up that way (with project and module files in one
directory, in the project root, and the source files in a completely different
location) and the feature, as it is now, is not very helpful.

Thx,
Andrei

We've reworked the implementation after M1 was released so that it now uses
scopes, and so you'll be able to configure coloring for any files under the
project content roots.

+1 - It certainly should be available on the tab menu, if enabled - after all, that's the first place you'd look for setting tab colours.

Great, thanks for the update.

It'd be great if the coloring could also be tied to File Types. I can't use
scopes for script vs. Java files as they're all in the src module.
