newline with \n no longer works in some parts of state diagram

asked May 11, 2017 in Bug by anonymous
I've just upgraded to PlantUML version 1.2017.12 from version 8041 and now \n does not work sometimes. In the (cut-down) example below, the Rule defined in the statechart just shows \n literally, but the OnEntry text in the initialState renders \n correctly as a newline. If I move the Rule text down into the InitialState and change the reference then the \n is rendered correctly.

@startuml
skinparam state {
    backgroundColor White
 backgroundColor<<softwaremodule>> #CCDBC8
 backgroundColor<<signal>> #DE8C73
 backgroundColor<<statechart>> LightYellow
 backgroundColor<<statemachine>> LightYellow
 backgroundColor<<state>> LightYellow
 backgroundColor<<initialstate>> LightYellow
    BorderColor<<initialstate>> Black
}
skinparam shadowing false
skinparam defaultTextAlignment left
state "**&#171;statechart&#187; Master Switchgear Model - Logic**" as 8E437FA1B6DC905 <<statechart>> {
  8E437FA1B6DC905 : **Rule:**\n    if ('openStatus') then\n        'switchgearStatus' := $OPEN$
  state "**&#171;statemachine&#187; smSwOp**" as 6D4FA3B201978C <<statemachine>> {
    [*] -[#blue,bold]-> 368F54ED2A907
    state "**&#171;initialstate&#187; stInit**" as 368F54ED2A907 <<initialstate>> {
      368F54ED2A907 : **OnEntry:**\n    'operatingMode' := $Switchgear Model Initialisation$\n    'setOperatingModeInfo' := $Set 1 for Auto Mode, Set 2 for RTDS Mode, Set 3 for Manual Mode$\n
    }
  }
}

Thanks for the report!
This is indeed a regression: sorry about that.

You'll find here the last beta that fixes this issue:
