I have a document with a mix of diagrams. I have some activity diagrams, and I also drew an Org Chart using DOT notation, and the look is inconsistent between the two.

Can you please provide node shadows in DOT diagrams?

Thanks for the suggestion, but it's very unlikely that shadows will be added to DOT diagram elements.

The reason why is that DOT diagrams are generated by GraphViz, and the source code of GraphViz is not hosted or modified by PlantUML team. You should ask the Graphviz team ( for this feature.

Sorry about that!
