I use a switch case in the flow chart, but there is always a diamond at the end of the switch case.

Even though I enable `ConditionEndStyle hline` the diamond shape is still there.

How do I eliminate it?

BTW, is it possible to make the arrow in the switch case not distort?

skinparam ConditionEndStyle hline

switch (state)
    case (unlock)
    :status unlocked
    status changed;
    case (alarm)
    :status alarm
    status changed;
    case (default)
    :status locked
    status not changed;
