Multiple uml-sequence macro on a single page with toc macro results to error.

Hi All,

If there is multiple uml-sequence diagram ( on a single page, we need to use the 'file' parameter to make each diagram unique. We did this and everythings fine.

However, if we add a {toc} macro in the page, this results to error of all the uml diagrams in the page:

Error formatting macro: uml-sequence: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The file name for the uml-sequence macro must be unique. Use the 'file' parameter to specify a different file name.

Is there any fix or workaround for this? Thanks in advance!

Define any kind of unique filename in the macro:

{uml-sequence: style=vs2010|file=2}


For some reason, the 'file' parameter does not work when {toc} is existing on the page. the uml still results into error, we were forced to remove {toc} for now.
