0000302: highlighting and color saving
you should be able to select a region, right click and go to a context menu sub menu called "Color >" which lets you select a color using an rgb palette that sets the background of the selected region to that color in the file and saves that highlight setting in the project file. this would help for making code sections color coded for various visual cues as to a code region's general purpose. as i develop deeper relationships inside the software, i need some sort of visual cue (preferably other than a comment) to highlight a particular region could provide these cues.

I thought more of how this feature should work. I should be able to hold ALT, and the ] should turn into a highlighter pen. then, i should be able to paint rectangular regions with a particular color.

additional functionality could be forthcoming on this, stay tuned -- the gist of the additional functionality is creating lego-like blocks that can be stuck together
