How to disable specified type elements' shadow? For example, disable notes' shadow:

@startuml test

' {dark,light}{orange,red,green,blue}

!define DARKBLUE

!define FONTNAME "Bookerly"

!includeurl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Drakemor/RedDress-PlantUML/master/style.puml

skinparam {

dpi 150

roundcorner 10

defaultfontname Bookerly

defaultfontstyle italic

NoteShadowing false


skinparam NoteShadowing false

class Object << general >>

Object <|--- ArrayList : parent

note top of Object : In java, every class\nextends this one.

note "This is a floating note" as N1

note "This note is connected\nto several objects." as N2

Object .. N2

N2 .. ArrayList : a message

class Foo {






styled method()


note bottom: On last defined class

Foo -[hidden]> Object

Looks like that the NoteShadowing false has no effect, When using Shadowing false all shadows are gone.

Hello M., and all,

Just to answer an old question, now with style, you can manage individually, as:

All with shadowing:

Only note without shadowing:

with adding:

skinparam shadowing true
note {
  shadowing 0

If that can help,
