Visio Valve Symbols - Manual Operation

I'm making a Piping & Instrumentation Diagram in Visio 2010 using the P&ID Template.  I like the valve symbols.  I especially like that the powered valve symbol allows you to select a power type, so it puts an "S" in the box for solenoid operated, a "P" for pneumatic operated, etc.  However, I wish that the other valve symbols (gate, globe, ball, etc) would allow you to add the little T handle to emphasize that they are manually operated.  Is there no way to do this?  I could use the "Screw-down valve" symbol, which does have the T handle.  But then I can't differentiate between gate, globe, ball, etc.  


Your require is that want to add the little  to the shapes. I suggest you a simple workaround:


Add a text box in the valve symbols > Add the little



Then, here is some customizable shapes, we could refer to :
