Hello Carl,

You can use Margin and new style feature like:

wbsDiagram {
    Padding 5
    Margin 5

With this result:

Hi Th.

Thanks for the quick reply.

The margin seems to create more vertical space, which is great, but it does not change the horizontal spacing.

Any thoughts on how to get the horizontal spacing tuned?

The only "margin" that is mentioned in the output of the command:

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



@plantuml something to add to the (language output) code I think
