Text rotated parallel to arrow

Is it possible to have the text of an arrow parallel to the arrow and ontop of it?

In particular, I'd like to make an use-case diagram with extend/include arrows looking like this:

Use-case diagram with the wanted arrows

As you can see, the <<extend>> and <<include>> are part of the arrow.

If I try to recreate the same in PlantUML, it looks like this:

Use-case diagram from PlantUML


usecase "UseCase" as a

usecase "UseCase" as b

usecase "UseCase" as c

a -[hidden]r-> c

a .d.> b : <<extend>>

b <.u. c : <<include>>


Is there a way to achieve the wanted look in PlantUML?

Thank you for your help.
