Hello PlantUML,

From last release (v1.2021.1), with style enhancement on Deployment diagram, We have got some questions:

  • Is style management local or global?
    Local with persistence or only global?

Here are some examples "Mind-map vs Deployment":

DiagramMind-mapDeployment
Code
@startmindmap
* a
** b\na b c
<style>
node {
  FontColor green
  HorizontalAlignment right
  LineColor blue
}
</style>
** c\na b c
<style>
node {
  FontColor red
  LineColor red
}
</style>
** d\na b c
@endmindmap
@startuml
node "a"
node "b\na b c"
<style>
node {
  FontColor green
  HorizontalAlignment right
  LineColor blue
}
</style>
node "c\na b c"
<style>
node {
  FontColor red
  LineColor red
}
</style>
node "d\na b c"

ObservationOn Mind-map, style seems to be local with persistence.
(That's good cheeky)
And on Deployment, style is suddenly global!
The last style overwrites all the others.
(And that is the question...)

In fact, we got used to the mind-map style behaviour! wink

Thanks for your support,
Regards,
Th.
