multiple final states in state diagram

Hello, is it possible to have multiple final states at the same level (either at top level or within a composite states)?

If yes, how? i would like different states to point (via a transition) to a different final state. This is permitted in the UML or statecharts specification, it can be used to reflect different ways in which the behaviour described in a state (diagram) can terminate.

Sorry for my ignorance if this can be done, but I did not find any example on how this could be achieved.

Is this what you're looking for: http://forum.plantuml.net/2868

Indeed, thanks! The possibility to label distinct final states at the same level, as in (*1) and (*2) was indeed the functionality I was looking for but for which I did not find any examples. This indeed solves my problem.

I'm not sure if I miss something but state diagrams use [*] as end nodes and do not support numbers. The answer (*1) is for activity diagrams and does not work for me in state diagrams (as of version 1.2020.0). 

What did work for me was:

@startuml

state Top
state Middle
state Bottom
state EndTop <<end>>
state EndBottom <<end>>

[*] -> Middle
Middle -up-> Top
Middle --> Bottom
Top -up-> EndTop
Bottom --> EndBottom
