Customizable diagrams

With Lucidchart, you're not limited to dull, outdated diagram color schemes and font choices. Rather than struggling to align lines with text, enjoy Lucidchart’s drag-and-drop functionality and intuitive alignment choices. Need to create a high-profile presentation for your supervisor? You can use any color combination and choose from hundreds of fonts.

Cross-platform compatibility

Many programs for creating cause and effect diagrams are tied to only one operating system. Whether you run OS X, Windows, or Linux, Lucidchart has you covered. You can even edit and view diagrams from a mobile device—iPhones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets are all compatible. Since your diagrams are hosted online, they are easy to access.

World-class integrations

Whichever business tools you prefer, Lucidchart documents are compatible. Do you need to embed a diagram into Microsoft Word or Google Docs? Lucidchart has an add-on for both programs. You can download your diagram as a PDF, JPG, or PNG, and distribute it any way you like. Share as a URL or as a traditional printed document.
