    Lucidchart is not only Mac compatible, it’s also Visio compatible. That means that you can import your VDX, VSDX, and VSD files directly into the editor. You can also export files back to Visio if you need to deliver them to users who aren’t on Lucidchart yet.
  • Lucid Features

    Fully integrated

    Our numerous integrations make Lucidchart the perfect solution for your team. If you are using Google Apps, you can integrate your domain with Lucidchart and organize your team from there. We also offer an easy-to-use team admin panel.

    Simple sharing

    Since Lucidchart is hosted on the web, sharing is that much easier. Try posting a funny flowchart on social media, or share a sensitive document securely through email. You can also download your diagrams in a variety of image formats for web sharing or printing.
