alias of folder is drawn in top part ( 8031beta5)

0 votes

folder "somefolder" as sf

Gets drawn with the alias ("sf" in this case) in the lip of the folder (the top part that sticks out). I have not found another component where the alias is also printed.

This happens with 8031beta5.

Thanks for the report.

You can test the last beta https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

The following diagram is working fine with it:

folder "somefolder" as sf
note top : foobar

folder "somefolder2" as sf2
note bottom : foobar

folder sf3verylong
note top : foobar

I just realize that you were also talking about the alias beeing printed...
We still have to think about this point...
Both beta5 and beta8 produce the same output here..

Let me know if I can test or try something else!

EDIT: just saw your added comment. Ok fair enough :) I'll do with using the sometimes very long names all over my source ;P
