Is there a way to create a "Feature Board"?

I'm relatively new to PlantUML and can see how powerful this is.  However, one of the things I can't see is how to create a "Feature Board".

So, imagine a "Story Board" layout.  It's effectively a grid.

Along the top are boxes which are "Headings", e.g.

[Search] [Add to Cart] [Checkout] etc.  Think "Epic" or "Feature"

Then, underneath each of these headings (linked with a vertical line) would be the "user stories", e.g.

[Search]

    |

[By Keyword]

    |

[By Category]

There would be a way to give each box a back-ground colour, so one could colour "Phase 1" in one colour, "Phase 2" in a separate colour, etc, etc.

I mentioned a grid layout - it would be great if there were an option to align each row, but this is probably not a "must have" because there should be no relationship along the row, just vertically.

Thanks

JG

Does it sound like https://github.com/plantuml/plantuml/issues/423 ?

This is really an alpha feature, you can give a try.

Hi - this is certainly on the right lines.

I do have some suggestions, but will add them to the [GitHub](https://github.com/plantuml/plantuml/issues/423) page.

Many thanks
