error when using indented elements as ports

asked May 29 in Bug by costateixeira (400 points)
I'm trying to get any way to do intended elements in a class diagram. I get an error

class net.sourceforge.plantuml.creole.SheetBlock2 cannot be cast to class net.sourceforge.plantuml.svek.WithPorts (net.sourceforge.plantuml.creole.SheetBlock2 and net.sourceforge.plantuml.svek.WithPorts are in unnamed module of loader org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppClassLoader @2d8ad8ab)

Can I name my ports when the elements are indented?

We have removed the crash in last online version.

However, you still cannot use ports with indented elements... Is this really mandatory :-) ?

Thank you for addressing the crash. The other thing -using ports with indented elements - would then be a new feature.

I'm increasingly using and documenting how to use plantuml for several types of diagrams, but not for mapping - so I have to draw custom diagrams, embedding PNG, managing those diagrams. I tried it on "flat" objects but that doesn't provide the right info. So, back to embedding pngs.
 it's a mess and when plantuml supports it, it will be such a relief... So in theory it's not mandatory. In practice, it is (unless I consider embedding PNG diagrams as normal again... yuck! :)
