Its possible to add whole usecase and class diagrams inside a frame, but when trying to do the same with sequence diagrams it gives a syntax error:

frame foo {
    participant a
    participant b

    a -> b
}

Seems like the syntax of sequence diagrams is different, so I also tried this:

group foo
    participant a
    participant b

    a -> b
end

But it wont place all diagram inside the frame, only the a -> b part.

I would like something like this, a frame around whole diagram:

Hi,

I think we had something similar a month ago.

Is that what you mean?

Yes, it's the same problem, but you misunderstood the issue.

I updated the issue with an image so it would be more clear.
