skinparam for swimlanes?

0 votes
Hi there,

I love your PlantUML, and using the new syntax for activity diagrams I love those swimlanes.

Is there a skinparam in order to change font and border (BorderColor, FontColor, BorderThickness) ?


Thanks a lot,

Not yet, but this is a good idea!

With last beta https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

You can have:

skinparam SwimlaneTitleFontColor red
skinparam SwimlaneTitleFontSize 8
skinparam SwimlaneBorderColor blue
skinparam SwimlaneBorderThickness 5


This beta *should* work with IntelliJ, but you should do a backup before upgrading plantuml.jar

Next official version (V8033) should be published next week. When this will be done, you may suggest IntelliJ team to update their plugin.

Thanks again for your suggestion!
