Let's take this example.

Which part would you like to remove?

Thank you for answer.

I want to clear the name and resource percentage from the task bar of the picture.

  I want it to be Task1, not Task1 {Alice}.

I want it to be Task2, not Task2 {Bob 50%}.

thank you!

The most difficult is to find some appropriate syntax :-)

With last online version, you can have:

hide ressources names
[Task1] on {Alice} lasts 10 days
[Task2] on {Bob:50%} lasts 2 days
then [Task3] on {Alice:25%} lasts 1 days

We are not 100% satisfied with the syntax. But is this what you are looking for ?

Hello PlantUML team,

Thanks for this enhancement.

And on the same topic:

  • How to change font, size, colour, etc. of the resources on the bottom of the diagram?
  • Then could you add a new command like hide ressources footbox in order to hide the resource footbox on the bottom?

Thanks for your works.

You can now have hide ressources footbox.

About changing font/size/colour of the ressources on the bottom of the diagram, it's not a top priority for us. Actually, giving some suggestions for CSS syntax may help us :-)

Thanks for this new enhancement.

I will search, but it is not urgent, some CSS names for resources on the bottom of the diagram...

This is the feature I was looking for!
However, the following error occurs in the local version, not the online version.

#java -jar plantuml-1.2021.16.jar test.puml
Error line 2 in file: test.puml
Some diagram description contains errors

PlantUML 1.2021.16

[From string (line2) ]


hide ressources names

Syntax Error?

Is this feature not available in the local version?
