Thanks, it really helps. Is there a way to do lines with 90 degree turns?
commented Sep 23, 2022 by The-Lu (67,000 points)

Hello K., and all,

You can test:

skinparam linetype ortho

or

skinparam linetype polyline

or

!pragma layout smetana

or

!pragma layout elk

but this is not conclusive...

If that can help,
Regards.

Hello K.,

Could you have also a look on:

That is only on beta version... But all remarks or comments are welcome...

Regards.
