For sequence diagram:

When I make the group, it takes the horizontal space of the actors that are involved.

Is there a way to disable this and make the group extend over the entire width of the diagram, so that all groups are aligned horizontally?


Thank you for any advice

Could you post a short and simple example that shows the issue ?

the example below: group 1 does not include Carl, and group 2 does not included Bob, so the groups are automatically sized and are not aligned (the left sides and right sides).

Can we override this?

Thank you

group 1
Bob -> Alice : hello
group 2
Carl -> Alice: Hi

No, currently you cannot change this behavior.
We do not expect to change this right now.
Maybe in some future (> 6 months)
Sorry about that!
