SmartDraw vs Lucidchart

Click the "Try it now" button and sign up for a free trial. In the time it would take you to set up a Parallels desktop, install SmartDraw, and open the program, you could be finished with a Lucidchart diagram.


Real-time collaboration

Work in real time with anyone in the world. Unlike SmartDraw, Lucidchart allows you to work on the web. That means instant collaboration, multi-user editing, and automatic file backups.

Cross-platform compatibility

Access your documents across all of your devices at no additional cost. Lucidchart works on your PC, iMac, MacBook, and iPad, so your projects are always up-to-date and accessible.

Feature Highlights

Lucidchart’s intuitive features bring you a diagramming tool that’s easy from the start.

Drag and drop

Easy diagramming

Making diagrams shouldn’t be difficult. Lucidchart cuts through the learning curve to deliver a product that’s immediately accessible. Enjoy the advantages of themed layouts, customizable templates, drag-and-drop technology, and a clean, intuitive interface.

Visio Import and Export

Visio compatible

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.

Google Drive

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.

Share via print or digital

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.
