Hi,

Is it possible to change the default shape of the node into oval, or diamond?

Or can I create a component whose default shape is diamond or oval?

And how do I keep the shape of one type of components at the same size?

How do I do this?

Thanks

Fang

Hi L., and all,

  • Could you replace `node` by `storage` or `usecase`?

Regards.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestions.

storage or usecase can provide me the shape of oval, but I also need the diamond.

Ultimately, I would like to know if it's possible to overwrite the shape.

Some context might help...
What do mean by "node"?

Hi,

By 'node' I mean the node component in the deployment diagram.

The node has a default shape of 3D box.

I am hope to change the default shape of the node into other shapes, e.g., oval, diamond as wishes.

Actually, it does not have to be the node.

Is the shape overwriting allowed?

I didn't find the command for change the shape using 'skinparam'.

Also, I wish to create a shape of diamond as I didn't find any component that has a diamond shape in plantuml.

Greate thanks.
