In my finder toolbar, I have the color label drop-down. I would like to have multiple instances of it with different colors pre-selected. However it isn't possible to even add more than one instance of 'label' to the toolbar, so basically what I'm asking is:

  • Is there a 'hacky' way to add it anyway, and if so, can it have different colors pre-selected?
  • If above isn't possible, does anyone know of a software that will achieve this? I have not found one yet.

I have not been able to find anything to add more color labels as well. Have you found a way to do this? Thank you. – user51994 Jun 25 '13 at 1:35
Nope, haven't found a thing. As far as I can tell, it isn't possible. – Patrik Alienus Jul 4 '13 at 18:19
