Decreasing visibility of links

asked Dec 16, 2014 in Wanted features by anonymous

The standard blue&underline format for links is great, but it would be nice to have the possibility to make links appear as simple text.

There's already the hyperlinkColor parameters, can you add a skinparam parameters to change the underlining?


skinparam hyperlinkColor black
(*) --> "[[]]"


Thank you

Thanks for the suggestion.

You can download here a beta version :

That supports:

skinparam hyperlinkUnderline false
:foo1 [[]] end;

Is it what you are expecting ?

Thanks again,

This doesn't seem to work on lane titles. For example, this still shows a blue undelined link :

    skinparam hyperlinkColor black
    skinparam hyperlinkUnderline false
    |[[ First actor]] |
    :[[ Action1]];
    | Other actors |
