Linking to Pages in another Space with the Graphviz plugin Flowchart Macro

In relation to GVIZ-20 (https://bobswift.atlassian.net/browse/GVIZ-20), the flowchart macro can link to pages within the same space, quite easily with the following syntax.

{flowchart}
Box1 [URL="Page for Box 1"]
"Box 2 with space" [URL="Page for Box 2"]
Box1
Box1 -> "Box 2 with space"
Box1 -> "Another Box with no link"
{flowchart}

However, it doesn't seem to work when you add the spacekey to the page "KEY:Page for Box 2"

Is linking to pages in other spaces what the GVIZ-20 is referring to? Or is there another trick to linking to pages in another space?

(Note, the original comment that the JIRA ticket came from is no longer visible on the documentation page).

Here is a link to a Tutorial I wrote that includes the details from this question and answer

Jodie, very nice! I hope you don't mind, I put a link to it on the Documentation page for the Graphviz Plugin for Confluence

Thanks Bob, that is great!

Of course you can just include the full external URL of the page, but that is not really the point. I want to know if there is a way you can do it with using the regular Confluence linking syntax.

This is poorly documented and should be improved. GVIZ-20 will be used to track. Try using

Box1 [URL="[spacekey:Page for Box 1]"]

I'm currently writing some documentation for my client so I will turn it into a blog post to share.

Excellent, thanks Bob! that is fantastic stuff!
