Is there a way to convert a plantUML diagram to a diagram ?


we are using Confluence 6.13 with 9.0.3. Some of our users import PlantUML diagrams into Confluence. It works well enough, nevertheless some of them would like to 'convert' the PlantUML diagram into a 'real' diagram that would be easier to update for them. 

Today if you create a diagram with the PlantUml functionality, you cannot edit it like a diagram (move the boxes, edit the layout or the text) without generating another PlantUML code.

Is there a way to convert a plantUML diagram to a diagram ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

At this time doesn't understand the PlantUML format i.e it is not possible to convert a plantUML to a diagram. There were discussions about this, but we felt declaring a diagram and drawing a diagram were distinct use cases, so it's not something we're planning.

Thanks for understanding.

Kind regards,

follow the steps
Arrange >> Insert >> Advanced >> PlantUML

If you know how to do the reverse, get in touch, as I haven't figured it out yet.

It works! Thank you~

Create a file with inserted PlanUML textual content and rendered PlantUML SVG.

This does the same as []Arrange>Insert>PlantUML, but from the command line.

bash# diagram.plantuml.txt > diagram.drawio.xml
