Border thickness

+2 votes
Border thickness seems to be only skinable in sequence diagrams. Would it be possible to generalize it? For instance:
skinparam classBorderThickness .5
By the way, the border thickness skinparams do not appear in the -language output.

what about rectangle border?
Hi, not sure to understand your remark.
Could you give more details? Thanks

Good idea,

We have implemented it in this beta:

(and the -language has been corrected too)
This will be in version 7998.

skinparam classBorderThickness .5
class Foo
interface Foo2

Do not hesitate to ask for other borders thickness.

Thanks for the suggestion,

Something like that would be ideal: being able to add borders to titles.

It would also be useful to be able to add a border to the whole diagram, with something like: skinparam diagramborderthickness 2

About title, with last beta:

You can have:
skinparam titleBorderRoundCorner 15
skinparam titleBorderThickness 2
skinparam titleBorderColor red
skinparam titleBackgroundColor AliceBlue-Bisque
title My Title
Bob -> Alice : hello

I hope that you'll like this.

DiagramBorderThickness remains to be done
usecaseBorderThickness would be most helpful.

Also, any way to display linked images in place of actor stick-figures?

And a long overdue "Thank you" for this most awesome tool! :-)
Nice idea!
With last beta:
You can now have:
skinparam UsecaseBorderThickness 0.5
usecase foo1
Is this what you are expecting ?
I want to say yes and thank you, especially that your response was so incredibly fast!

But this is where I embarrassingly reveal my unfamiliarity with the command line, and that my use of PlantUML up to this point has solely been via javascript calls to the plantuml.com server.

That said, I managed to install Homebrew and Graphviz, and will report back a more proper thanks once I’ve figured out how to work with .jar’s. It’s a new world for me.
