Continue for step-by-step instructions on how to insert a Venn diagram in Google Docs with Lucidchart or Google Drawings.

Using Lucidchart

Venn diagrams have proven useful for identifying relationships between sets of data; however, some programs make it difficult to get your Venn diagram just right. Maybe the circles aren’t quite aligned or you can’t find the exact color combinations you want.

In Lucidchart, you can quickly create and customize professional Venn diagrams without a steep learning curve. As the ideal solution for group projects and collaboration, Lucidchart even allows you to share and work with others on the same Venn diagram.

Lucidchart integrates with all of G Suite, so to insert your Venn diagram in Google Docs, simply download our add-on with these steps:

  1. Select Add-ons > Get add-ons….
  2. Search and select Lucidchart.
  3. When a pop-up window appears, click “Accept” to give Lucidchart access to Google Docs.
  4. You now have the Lucidchart add-on! Click “Get Started” to pull in the diagrams from your account.

From the add-on, you can click to create something new, insert existing diagrams, or update the diagrams you have already uploaded. You’ll only need to set up the Lucidchart add-on once—then you can build Venn diagrams, mind maps, flowcharts, and any other visuals you may need from there on out.

If you would rather build your Venn diagram natively in Google Docs, you can use Google Drawings. Just follow these instructions. (Pro tip: It’ll be easier in Lucidchart.)

  1. Select Insert > Drawing.
  2. Add circles and text boxes to create your Venn diagram.
  3. Click “Save & Close.”
  4. Double-click your drawing to return to the editor and make changes.

Now that you know how to create a Venn diagram in Google Docs, you can compare, contrast, and visualize data to your heart’s content. Good luck!
