Line break \n not working for plant UML

Hello Team,


I am using Confluence plant UML plugin version 6.6. 


But when Iplace the following macro in the page I face syntax error because of line break charecter \n.


actor Bob #red

' The only difference between actor

'and participant is the drawing

participant Alice

participant "I have a really\nlong name" as L #99FF99    #error happens here

/' You can also declare:

participant L as "I have a really\nlong name" #99FF99


Alice->Bob: Authentication Request

Bob->Alice: Authentication Response


Once I save this page after providing this macro, the page displays a syntax error. However if I remove \n diagram appears but without a line break.


Please provide a resoltuion for this issue.



Bob->L: Log transaction
