Multi-line message: comment handling changed

asked May 31, 2020 in Bug by anonymous

Hi,

I've been used following syntax in my sequence diagrams:

A -> B: Message\n\
' |_ Content 1\n\
' |_ Content 2\n\
|_ Content 3

The intention is that the lines "Content 1" and "Content 2" should be hidden.

Above syntax had worked fine, but the lines "'Content 1" and "Content 2" recently began to be displayed.
(I tried several jar versions, and found this is since V1.2020.0)

I'd be happy if this change of behavior could be reverted so that the comments are not displayed, since this breaks our existing code base.

Anyway, thanks so much for providing this awesome product!

Thanks for the report. To be honest, we did not notice that this is possible to use trees in sequence diagrams !

Users are very creative :-)

Anyway, this should be fixed in last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar

Tell us if it's not working for you

Thanks for the fix!

I neither did not notice that our use case is quite rare..

I tried the beta and it's working fine for simple multi-line messages, and of course, trees!
