Is there a way to color-code entire section in Arrangement View?

Dear Ableton Gurus,

 

Does anyone know of a way to color code an entire slice of a song (e.g. chorus) with a single color, in arrangement view?  

 

I'd love to be able to do this, but I can't figure out how!

 

thanks!

    Pull a window around the parts that you want to give a different colour, or manually select all the parts that you want to change (shift+click to add parts).
    Then right-click and select the colour you want.

    You can summon the dark spirits of Shogoth through mystical queing and arhythmic sorcery to induce the oblivious pixels into a mauve fit of pique, but that's just the colour mauve. To achieve tartan it is better to use a cheese grater, but only after midnight & ONLY with oven gloves, on your knob. I have found this route more practicable than bating paedophiles with fish fingers, but then the variable weather & constant sputum gatherings in the provinces can render such Celtic bedizening into mere strabismic folly. I hope this helps.
