Hi, this is Jebbs, the author of vscode-plantuml.

Since stdout can only stream one file, I would like to be able to specify the page index when call the command.

It's critical in solving these issues:

Ok. Nice idea!

In last beta https://www.dropbox.com/s/koo42q3d9gxw288/plantuml.jar?dl=0

we've added a flag -pipeimageindex N in the command line, so you can now have:

java -jar plantuml.jar -pipeimageindex 1 -pipe < test.txt

(the index starts at 0).

Is this what you are expecting ?
