Embedded segments in Macros.
It will be nice if we could use classic Segments besides Inputs so those can be embedded into Macro.
That way we could have much cleaner Styles and hierarchy levels.

It's not possible, sorry. Segments (together Parameters and Splines) are special nodes, which are stored in 3DS Max parameters.
There is not a simple way to embed them in a macro, without loosing the link with Max. Internally Macros are stored as a XML string, so can be saved and exported easily.

Thank you, Carlos.
Yes, make perfect sense.
Maybe to enable it locally just for the working scene or find a way to temporally hide some group of nodes eg. Hide/Collapse everything in a NOTE BOX (on RMB we can see options for Collapse/Expand but with no effect).
So, now we have "Move Content" checkbox and to add "Hide/Collapse Content"
