asked May 18 in Question / help by anonymous

PlantUML is very useful and helpful

every day, thank you!

By the way, can I add memos or explanations to tasks

like sequence diagram ?

example:

@startgantt

Project starts 2020/05/18

[task01] starts at 2020/05/19 and lasts 4 days

note bottom

memo1 ...

memo2 ...

explanations1 ...

explanations2 ...

end note

With last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar you can now have :

@startgantt
[task01] lasts 15 days
note bottom
  memo1 ...
  memo2 ...
  explanations1 ...
  explanations2 ...
end note

[task01] -> [task02]
@endgantt

This is quite limited right now. Tell us what you think about it !

Download plantuml.jar(beta), and use PlantUML with VSCode.

This "note" feature is, functionally what I'd like to use!, thank you!!!

It's helpful to add "notes and descriptions of tasks with uncertainty" that were hard to describe in a typical Gantt chart!(great!)

I can use it not only for business but also for personal use.


I tried to input the following code, but the description of "note" overlaps with "task03". I'm trying to find out if I can add a blank line, etc. (How is it possible to write it?)

The last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar gives a better result.

Tell us if you find other issues !

Thanks

Thank you !

I added a "dummy task(dummyXX-XX)”, etc to control what is displayed.

After the first separator:”— test01 —“, it seems easier to control.

After the second separator:”— test02 —“, it can be controled, though differentlly from first separator.
