Changing a folder's font style, size and colour

You may wish to highlight a folder's importance or purpose by changing the colour or the font style and size of the folder's name, for example: bold red, to indicate it's an important folder.

If a folder is selected, ie: it is the current folder, then doogiePIM uses the default Windows system highlight and font colour (in this state you would not be able to see your folder's custom font colour, however, the style and size is unaffected.)
