To apply color to a project-item the phrase 'is colored in' must be used.

However, for virtually all PlantUML diagrams the keyword #color is used instead.

Requiring users to learn a new key phrase, when an existing keyword is available is cumbersome.

I'm presently promoting PlantUML within my company and syntax inconsistencies like this slow-down adoption.

Thanks for the suggestion, and sorry about that.

Could you post a very simple example of your envisioned syntax ?

It would help!

Sure - I'll remember to provide syntax in future posts.

Existing Syntax:

[Design] is colored in lightblue

Proposed Syntax

[Design] #lightblue

Similar Syntax:

node Server #lightblue
