Lightroom: Colour label set and pinning them to a specific catalog or set of catalogs

A question but also an idea if there isn't a way round

I only use a few sets of colour labels but I do find myself wondering what image goes where when switching between. I have named my label sets so that they refer to my catalogs in some way

For example I have a set of Catalogs called submissions, they are then called by client. Most of these are stock libraries, so I have called my Label set
'stock libraries'

But on occasion I forget to switch sets and where Green was once 'Sold' it is now something relevant to another catalog.

Is there a way to pin a label set to a catalog, for example. If i choose 'stock libraries' for my 'istock' catalog, when i close that and reopen it, it would be nice for it to retain that label set

I then choose another catalog and apply a label set to it, when I switch back, it has retained that label set.

In short, Can we 'pin' a label set to a specific catalog and for it to remain on that catalog until we choose to change that label, and therefore keeping relevant labels and colours applicable to the catalog we are opening

If not, can I suggest a feature ?

Thanks
Stuart

No, it's not possible, so I'll switch this to a feature request for you.

Thanks.

Currently switching the label sets within a Catalog, in my opinion has no real advantage. I cannot label an image with more than one colour, nor would I want to so stands to reason that they should be unique to each catalog.
