Another day, another app that integrates with Lucidchart!

We’re happy to announce that you can preview your Lucidchart documents in Dropbox Paper, a collaborative workspace that helps teams document and share their ideas.

To use this integration, you simply need to paste a Lucidchart publish link into a Paper doc. Dropbox Paper will automatically generate a preview of your visual right inside the document. No setup required.

The preview image updates automatically when you make changes in Lucidchart—so it always shows the most up-to-date version of your diagram. And just as you work with your colleagues on documents in Paper, you can open Lucidchart to collaborate on flowcharts, org charts, mind maps, technical diagrams, and other visuals. Anyone can click the publish link to open the Lucidchart document and, depending on the permissions you set, leave comments and make changes in real time.

How to create a publish link

In case you’re not sure how to create a publish link for your Lucidchart document, just follow these simple steps.

1. Open the Lucidchart document you want to share, and from the top menu, click File > Publish. If you haven’t named your document yet, Lucidchart will prompt you to add a title.

2. In the menu that appears, select the “Publish” tab and choose from the publishing options in the drop-down menu.
