Not sure if this is a bug or feature request but would be nice to stop participant line after destroy.

hide footbox

Bob -> Alice : hello
Alice -> Ken ** : create
activate Ken
Bob -> Ken !! : destroy
Alice -> Bob : next step


PlantUML diagram

Line in Ken should not continue until next step.

Same or similar topic here:


and here:

Hello All,


A funny workaround is to recreate, at the end, the participant and to crop the final image!
But that is only a funny workaround! wink

== Cut here ==
create Ken
Alice -> Ken
== Cut here ==

If that can help, wink

Hey thanks for this method, however it will not work when the instance of the participant starts with the start of the sequence diagram...

Furthermore, re-creating Ken will remove the participant line of the first instance of Ken. This becomes visible if you don't activate the first instance of Ken.
