I have used PlantUML for long time in Eclipse and really like this small tool. Today I discovered that it also has a Word macro. The following steps worked for me on Word 2013.
- Download the macro
- Double click to open the macro file and follow the installation instruction to place the plantuml.jar and unzip GraphViz to proper directories
- Restart word and you should see the PlantUML menu
- Add PlantUML code into your word document, remember to enclose them with @startuml and @enduml
- Click the “UML.1” button and it will generate the UML diagram in a few seconds (the diagram below was copied from the PlantUML official website)
