How can I "unbold" part of class name

0 votes
For a class name in a class diagram I want to "unbold" part of the text, but only the opposite is possible.  The genenal font is set to bold (via "skinparam classFontStyle bold").  How can I revert that for part of my text?

Here is an example, where I actually want to be "Enumeration" in normal font weight, rather than bold:

enum BookCategory as "<color:#888888>«Enumeration»</color>\nBookCategory" { ... }

enum "<color:#888888>«Enumeration»</color>\n<b>BookCategory</b>" as BookCategory
Is this what you want?

Hello Serge,
thanks for your quick response, but it's not working as all class names are bold anyway (due to skinparam). What I could do though is, to set classFontStyle to normal, but than I need to surround each and every classname with <b>-tags (as you suggested).
Is there any other way?
Not yet.
But we are going to implement a <plain> tag that will do the job.
We'll post a message here when ready
You're awesome ;-)
The last beta https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar
skinparam classFontStyle bold
enum BookCategory as "<color:#888888><plain>Enumeration</plain></color>\nBookCategory"
However, very few tests have been done, so please post here if you find issues with this new syntax.
Thanks for your suggestion!
Perfectly. Awesome response time ;-)
