skinparams for arrow not working?

asked Apr 30, 2017 in Bug by anonymous

I'm trying to define my own style for class diagrams and recognized that none of the arrow skinparameters are working.

my code looks like this:

skinparam Arrow{

    Color black

    FontSize 10

    FontColor red



the used font is still in black and the arrows themself still red.


Kind regards,

Which version of PlantUML are you using ? Maybe you should upgrade ?

The following example is working for us on the online server:

skinparam Arrow{
    Color blue
    FontSize 10
    FontColor red
class foo
class dummy
foo --> dummy : working

The font is red and the arrow is blue.

I'm using plantuml through the markdown-preview enhanced plugin for atom. According to their website they are using version 8054 (

Is this the current one? I see that you are using a new versioning scheme :)

8054 is from February 2017. (see ), which is a long time ago for us :-)

So you should upgrade : simply updating your plantuml.jar file should be ok.
Keep us informed!

I replaced the used jars and that fixed the issue :)

Thank you very much for your support!
