Hello PlantUML team,

From:

Then:

  • How to insert Mindmap or WBS diagrams in other diagrams?
  • Could you improve the sub-diagram or embedded diagram features for all type of diagram?

We don't know what would be the best syntax, like with salt or not:

{{
salt
{
...
}
}}

Here is a little sum-up of existing behavior:

sub-diagram →
↓ host-diagram
ActivityClassDeploymentGanttMindMapSequenceStateWBSWireframe (salt)
ActivityOKOKOKKO with @startgantt:


OK without @startgantt:
KO

Thanks for yours works,

Hello plantuml,

Marvellous...

FYI, on SVG output, the second example gives a java.lang.NullPointerException:

Hello PlantUML team,

Another open question:

If you allow (no return line before wbs or mindmap and return line mandatory before salt):

@startuml
legend

{{wbs
* root
** level1
** level1
}}

{{mindmap
* root
** level1
** level1
}}

'and

{{
salt
{
[Example button]
[X] Checked box
}
}}

end legend
@enduml

→  Link to PlantUML online server

Could you allow (return line or not) :

{{
wbs
...
}}

or

{{salt
...
}}

?

In order to have a consistent behaviour between salt, wbs or mindmap.

That is an open question, to debate...

Regards,
Th.
