Different IDE Colors by Project?

For the task I'm working on at the moment, I've got two separate Wing IDE's open at the same time each connected to a different remote host. It's easy enough to keep track of which IDE I'm in when the panes are all docked, but it can get pretty confusing if I move any tools to separate windows.

Is there an easy way to have the color scheme be set per project so that I can easily keep track of which windows belong to which IDE?

You should be able to duplicate your preferences file, choose a different color scheme, and then start Wing from the command line with a --prefs-file argument. See for documentation of the command line arguments. The default preferences file is in the Wing settings directory listed in the About dialog box; the preferences file is a .ini format file that can be edited directly.

Thank you. That should work really well for my environment.
