Currently, DataWarrior has two mechanisms for adding color to atoms:
- automatic by current structure filter settings or by similarity to the current reference row. This can be changed in the table header popup menu: "Highlight Structure By..."
- explicitly by a hidden column that defines atom colors for an associated structure column. An example would be the pKa reference file. Currently, there is no way to easily edit atom color by the user.

One could think of extending both coloring mechanisms for users to be more useful, e.g. let users provide a list of molecules or substructures that cause automatic coloring. One could also use substructure background highlighting. Or, as you propose, one could add an option in the editor to add color to individual atoms and store these colors inside the hidden column. Your question implies that you would like to edit atom colors individually for every structure, right?
