Can I alter the appearance in a workflow of Macro tool?

I am creating a workflow which is using a number of Macros to perform different functions.

 

I was thinking it would be great if I could set a property which would allow me to change the appearance of an inserted Macro on the canvas. Otherwise, you see a lot of blue circles but there isn't any obvious visual clue as to which is doing what.

Obviously, I can put in an annotation, but that tends to blend in to the rest. It would be great if I could set the macro to have a certain appearance to enable me to quickly differentiate them.

 

e.g. instead of the top pic, something like the bottom pic
