graphviz text showing up as squares

Michael Park Feb 04, 2014

I'm creating a graph database diagram using the graphviz plugin but the text in the description shows up as squares. How do I fix? Is it an encoding issue? I'm using the png option with graphviz and not the svg option. SVG option does show text, but it has other issues.

Can you post something that demostrates this either here or open an issue.

Michael Park Feb 04, 2014

sure, try this.

1. create new graph viz component

2. see default sample imge with boxes for text

graph viz

Weird. One box per character I assume. Do you get similar if you do flowchart macro with A -> B ? Any special language environment settings or similar? Is it the same using a different browser?

yes, one box per charcter, no special env settings that I know of, corporate intranet install of jira/confluence. same on all browsers.

I would guess your graphviz installation is having some font problems. Get an admin to run a test on your installation's server (no Confluence involvement) with png output and see if the problem occurs. This is a link to a similar problem.

Yes, one box per character, no special env settings, this is on our coporate jira/confluence install.
