eps-export missing circles

0 votes
asked Apr 7 in Bug by Max

Hello,

I want to export some use-case-diagram to eps (later to pdf), but the circles around the use cases are missing. I tried both, a local instance of PlantUML (plantuml.1.2019.4.jar) and the server: www.plantuml.com/plantuml/...

My simple example:

@startuml test

(MyUseCase)

@enduml

commandline: java -jar $plantjar -teps test

Is that a known bug? I can't find a related topic here...

Many thanks for the feedback.

We have slightly changed our way of generating EPS in last release, and this is a regression.

It should be solved in last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar

Tell us if you find other issues!

When trying pdf I get a number of messages like:

Furthermore on other problems with (a.o.) pdf plantuml crashes (just tested with PlantUML version 1.2019.05beta10). See my previous questions (e.g. http://forum.plantuml.net/9299/problems-running-plantuml-for-different-output-formats) / emails

Hello, I found another issue:
the dashed arrow line is not dashed. Look at the following example, I tried it with the newest beta version.

@startuml
(Use case 1) <. :user:
(Use case 2) <- :user:
@enduml

Another issue I reported has nothing to do with eps-export but usecase diagrams:
