User Annotations Different Color

It would be nice to have the annotations that a user gives a tool with a different background color on the canvas than those tools where the annotation is being automatically populated.  Example would be the user gives a tool a specific name that shows up in blue but the formula tools that display the formula preview under the tool show up in yellow.

I was looking for the same feature.

I would like this as well, but I would also like to be able to hide the default annotations, but leave the User annotations.

Thanks for submitting this idea. Unfortunately we don't have a plan to implement this in the next year.
