Hello C., and all,

See doc. here:

ELK is distributed as an independent library. So you have to build it yourself, or you can download the complete jar file here.

Both plantuml.jar and elk-full.jar have to be in the very same folder. You cannot rename elk-full.jar

Once installed, you can invoke ELK instead of GraphViz with the !pragma layout elk directive.
