I want to write PlantUML diagrams from within LyX, and I want to put the result right into the document itself. To do so, I attempted to create a comment environment, in which I put the diagram description.
Basically, PlantUML scans a directory for a bunch of text like the following:
@startuml foo.png (A) --> (B) : x (B) --> (C) : y @enduml
...converts it on the fly to something GraphViz understands, then writes the output in
To do this, I tried to put the PlantUML source in a comment block. However, this results in the following output in the LyX file:
\begin_inset Note Note status open \begin_layout Plain Layout @startuml foo.png \end_layout <snip/> \end_inset
I tried to work around this by putting the source in an ERT block, but this simply adds a
\begin_inset ERT, without removing the
\begin_layout lines. How can I work around this?
