How do I display numbers for Diagramly?

I am experiencing the issue with Diagramly only showing the numbers while editing. When it is published, the numbers do not show. I have tried Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, but the problem spans. An example is below.

The current solution is to place an apostrophe or letter in front, which is not desirable (aesthetically).

<edit> left is the published version and right is in the editor window

Thanks Davin,

I did try it, it certainly is a nifty new thing I learnt! Unfortunately the problem still persists, adding the NBSP before or after. Well my Confluence is 5.1.2:4224, but Diagramly doesn't have a version.

Guess what, when I realised that it had no version! I had a lightbulb moment, so I went to check my Add-ons and there it was "update available".

Conclusion: Pre 2.6.3 (i.e. installed with vanilla Confluence 5.1.2 Download) has the MissingNo. issue.

Good old Diagramly and it's peculiarities! :)

Have you tried putting the numbers in brackets? It's not great, but better than a random and meaningless letter or apostrophe.

Odd ... it doesn't do that for me. What version are you on? Another thought would be to go to the end of the number and hold down the alt key and then type 255 on the number pad(must be the number pad). This will put an invisible non-breaking space(ascii 255) at the end of the number. It is not a space, but looks like it. If simply having a non numeric character fixes the issue for you then this might work and would be completely invisible.

Please note we won't see notifications for any questions except those asked using "addon-com.mxgraph.confluence.plugins.diagramly". I've corrected the tag.
