Would be nice to know which version of plantuml you used and have an example where you see the problem.

Hi Albert,

The version that i am using are basically online webpages, however if this feature can be executed in local one I will donwloaded and executed. The intention is to reduce the padding to be able to "compact" a long diagram.

Here you have an example.

skinparam Padding -3

Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response

Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response

According to the "language list" as provided by:

java -Djava.awt.headless=true -jar plantuml.jar -language

there are the following skinparam regarding padding:


Disclaimer: I didn't try them myself as an example is lacking.

Thank you very much!!! Padding is the option that i was looking!!! However do not accept negative values to reduce a bit the size of the figure :(.

Kind Regards,
