I have a file with the following content:


and when I give the following command:

java -Djava.awt.headless=true -jar "D:/Programs/plantuml\plantuml.jar" -ttxt aa.pu

the result is a Java crash:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: ATXT

        at net.sourceforge.plantuml.ugraphic.ImageBuilder.writeImageInternal(

This also happens with the utxt output.

This also happens with the following standard commands:


This happens with the latest current beta version 1.2018.08beta9 I have.

Same problem with -thtml, -txmi and -tscxml

Note in this case also the example:
Bob -> Alice: hello

gives this problem.

Probably also -tpdf (same error message, and with the "Bob/Alice" example another message appears as I have not loaded yet the right libraries for pdf; downloaded required libraries "Bob/Alice "example works, rest not as indicated).
