Changing the style of tasks via the Designer

Hi,

is there a possibility to change the style and layout of tasks using the Designer?
For example: Changing the font-size of certain labels or modifying the color of a task.

I think this would be pretty useful in order to customize the generated diagrams and use them for presentational purposes.
Right now I'm modifying the *.activiti files using the Eclipse built-in XML editor to change font-sizes, but it would be way more convenient to have those possibilities in the Designer.

I also noticed that after I changed the font-size for all existing tasks to 10, newly inserted tasks are again created with a font size of 8, also adding another fonts element in the fonts definition in the XML.
Is there any way to modify those default values for new tasks? Or would I have to extend the palette with the same objects that are in the standard palette, just with different default styles?

Regards
Florian
