You can change colors or the transcript, add designations, make any change you want.  You can even change the ID and Name on a list. But be careful it will the overwrite list with the ID you have selected.

Let’s add counters to an existing list. First, click in the pane underneath the existing designations and then click on the highlighter color button to select a counter color.

Notice the color change at the top when [hl=3] is inserted.

Paste the counters below the [hl=3], notice how the preview shows the counters have been added to the bottom of the list.

If you want to save a copy of the existing list without changes, check the Backup existing lists option.

If you don't want the backup, just hit Save Designations. You'll be warned.
