Hello !

Is it possible to use an horizontal line despite of a vertical one in concurrent state?

If yes, what is the synthax?

An example : http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/capture3028f09b149b062e63f74495aa47080f.php

Thank you !

You cannot do this with the actual version.

However, we like your suggestion, so we slightly change the syntax with the following beta:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

You can now use -- or || to denotate concurrent states.
Unfortunalty, this slightly change the rendering for old diagrams with concurrent state because -- denotates now a horizontal separator (sounds more logical)
However, thoses diagrams will still working, and the correction (change -- to ||) is minor, so we decide to go for this new syntax.

Thanks again for your suggestion, and feedback welcome!
