Spaces in Markdown syntax in MindMap

0 votes
asked Apr 21 in Wanted features by Michael
Hello :) I use MindMap in VSCode with PlantUML extension on Macbook. I use Markdown syntax. If I use spaces instead of tabs for indentation then Markdown syntax does not work. It would be great if Markdown syntax worked with spaces.

Thank you for PlantUML! Great app!

It works with a single space.

See: http://www.plantuml.com/plantuml/umla/SoWkIImgoStCIybDBE3IKWZFByf9uLBGKd3CJItAJ4xaKW2oVLChCfFpmSpGO4S5aBHhQL5-GIfOoBCaCQSIp0ekICpCK-1oICrBWPe80000

Could you post a simple non-working example ? It would help.

Thanks !

Hello PlantUML,

The only remains defect is :

@startmindmap
 * World
  * America
   * Mexico
   * USA 
  * Europe
   * Italy
   * Spain 
@endmindmap

See Markdown example on https://forum.plantuml.net/12230/allow-significant-indentation-beginning-mindmap-diagram

But it is perhaps difficult to correct.

And a workaround is to use Normal form or OrgMode syntaxwink

Regards,
Th.
