Emblems are coming back in Nemo!
In GNOME 2 you could right-click a file or a directory, click Properties and assign it a little emblem icon. You can enjoy that feature in MATE but for some reason it was removed from GNOME 3 and thus it never made it to Cinnamon. Anyway, this came to our attention so we’re bringing it back.
With a few emblems you can add visual clues to directories, mark files as favorites… it’s yet another tool for you to decide how to sort things in your computer.
Mint-X will feature updated emblems and you’ll be able to use them in both Caja and Nemo.
