If you set a color scheme at lower levels (connection, filetype, global), the color scheme is used for all files matching that level. Color schemes are searched in that order. It doesn't matter whether the file has been opened in the past or the file is brand new.
For example, to set a color scheme for all MPE files (provided individual connections do not have a different scheme):

qwinddb.dat) along with a lot of other file information. One way of removing a file-specific color scheme is to get rid of the document database. Of course, this is rather drastic as you would lose a lot of useful information about all the files you have accessed since you installed Qedit for Windows.
Here's another approach. Each file entry in the document database is identified by the fully-qualified filename. For this purpose, Qedit for Windows stores the connection name and the actual filename for host files and the full path for local files. Some examples would be:
MPEServer:myfile.mygroup.myacctSo, if you wanted to dissociate a color scheme, you could have Qedit for Windows create a new entry for that file by changing part of its name as stored in the document database. You can not edit the document database directly but could force the file to a new entry. The old entry would still be there but you wouldn't use it anymore.
For host files, you could create a new connection and open the file through it. This would affect all files opened through that connection. This would be limited to your own environment.
To limit the change to a single file, you could change the pathname (directories, group, account) or the filename itself but that would probably bring other problems and confusion if the file was used by someone else.
