Multiline usecase actor name?

asked Nov 4 in Question / help by lorny
Hi, I'm new to plantuml and tried to creat my first use-case diagram...

But I do have an actor which is {abstract} and I'd love to see his name on two lines.
For the abstract-tag I got a macro which works. But no idea how to create the new line (/n does not work).

This creates an error:

@startuml
!define ABSTRACT {abstract}

actor :ABSTRACT
person:

@enduml

Thanks for any help!

You can use

@startuml
!define ABSTRACT {abstract}
actor FOO1 as "ABSTRACT
person"
@enduml

Is this what you are looking for ?
