Splitting diagrams doesn't work in confluence

Hi, I've been using PlantUML plugin for embedding UML diagrams in confluence pages. When I'm trying to split long diagram using "newpage" keyword (http://plantuml.sourceforge.net/sequence.html#Splitting_diagrams) but then I see only the first part of diagram instead of multiple images:


A -> B: Hi, how are you?


B --> A: Thanks, I'm fine! And you?

Hello Alexander,

Michael and I discussed this problem last week.

We came to the conclusion, that we will not implement splitting in multiple images now. This is due to technical reasons. The features, that we can implement, are restricted by Confluence and the PlantUML library itself. Currently, we have not found any clean solution to create multiple images from one PlantUML macro and still support image maps (mouse over and linking). Giving this up would hurt a lot of our current users.

We hope, that this is not a serious problem for you.

Kind regards, Christoph

Hello Alexander,

it seems that we found a solution to support splitting of use case diagrams. I have created the following issue: https://avono-support.atlassian.net/browse/PUML-100. You can follow the developent there.

Kind regards,

Hello Alexander,

We added support of the newpage keyword in version 5.1 of the Confluence PlantUML Plugin. This version was released today. After updating the plugin all parts of the diagram will be shown.
