Arrow styles in sequence diagrams: final "o" will not work

while trying to use arrow styles in sequence diagrams, I stumbled across some cases, where the notation for the final "o" will not work:

  • If the arrow is a reference to the participant itself (foo ->o foo), the final "o" is omitted in the svg output
  • If the arrow is headed to the right side of the diagram (foo ->o]), a state diagram is created
  • If the arrow comes from the left side of the diagram ([->o foo), you get a syntax error

Same results, if the "o" is at the other side of the arrow.

Best regards

Thanks for the report. This has been fixed in V7993.

We have tested the following case:

foo o->o]
[o->o foo2
foo3 o<-o]
[o<-o foo4
foo ->o]
[o-> foo2
foo3 <-o]
[o<- foo4
foo o->o foo1
foo ->o foo1
foo o->o foo
foo ->o foo
foo o-> foo

If you find any other issue regarding "o", thanks to post here,
