When I use skinparam linetype ortho it breaks skinparam groupInheritance.

I created two hacks to solve this, the first one uses the diamond as intermediary element between the elements, the second a rectangle, the diamond seems better. It would be nice to have a placeholder element that is invisible to help arranging elements, just like the invisible lines.


Diamond:

!define S              |
!define SPACE_01       INV_S(S)
!define SPACE_02       INV_S(SS)
!define SPACE_03       INV_S(SSS)
!define SPACE_04       INV_S(SSSS)

!define SPACE_07       INV_S(SSSSSSS)
!define SPACE_08       INV_S(SSSSSSSS)
!define SPACE_09       INV_S(SSSSSSSSS)
!define SPACE_10       INV_S(SSSSSSSSSS)
!define SPACER_C(s, l) l s l
