floating notes on their own in swimlanes? Is it possible?

0 votes

I have swimlanes where I would like to put a floating note on it's own in one of the swimlanes, but an attempt to do this:

|swimline1|

stuff

|swimane2|

(any kind of note)

|swimlane1|

more stuff

Results in  a note in swimlane1 ...

Not sure to understand: could you post here a real and working diagram ? It usually helps to understand requests!

Thanks!

Thanks.
This is a specific example:
@startuml
|laneOne|
:action1;
|laneTwo|
:action2;
|laneOne|
:action3;
|laneTwo|
floating note right
I would like this
note to appear
in laneTwo
even though
there is no action
there
endnote
|laneOne|
:action3;

Great, thanks for your detailed example.
It's much more easier to understand request with some concrete example.
This should be working with last beta
