Hello PlantUML,

i am new here in this forum, but i used PlantUML since a long time. It is a great tool to draw UML diagram.

I am wondering, if it is possible to draw a odd line in sequence diagram.

Thanks a lot!

Hello X.,

What do you means by a odd line, in sequence diagram?
Could you precise?

Regards,

Hello X.,

If you think of imperfect line or handwritten, yes, you can, but for all the sequence diagram, not for a specific arrow, as:

@startuml
skinparam handwritten true

Alice -> Bob : hello
note right: Not validated yet
Alice <- Bob : hello
@enduml

See also doc. here:

If that can help,
Regards,
Th.

Hello PlantUML team,

Here is a new test:

  • Could you allow this syntax also:
@startuml
A ->(10) B: text 10
B ->(10) A: text 10

A ->(10) B: text 10
A (10)<- B: text 10
@enduml

Regards.

Hello PlantUML team,

Thanks a lot, then... here is a new test (I did not test all types of arrows tail-head):

@startuml
a ->>(10) b
a (10)<<- b
@enduml

Thanks for yours works,
Regards.
