I'm using plantuml version 8036

I run it from Windows 7 (64 bit) command line as: java -jar %PLANTUML% -tpdf test.txt

The input file is simple:

@startuml
start
stop
@enduml

 

Regards, Ville

There are some additionnal jars needed for PDF

See http://plantuml.com/pdf.html

I have installed imagemagik and use the convert utility to create pdf. so far so good

Hi - I'm having this UnsupportedOperationException problem with PlantUML and the link to the PDF jars is 404. Is there an updated link?

I'm trying to use PlantUML images in a LaTeX document without too much conversion. If I could export .puml to .pdf it would make my workflow simpler. How to get PDF export working?

Thanks. The link is just fixed

Thanks, got it working. I'm using visual studio code with latex and plantuml and it's very cool with PDF rather than png.
