Visio for Mac
Lucidchart is a visual workspace that combines diagramming, data visualization, and collaboration to accelerate understanding and drive innovation.
The smarter, faster, more inclusive Visio alternative for Mac
Work on any device—no downloads or virtual machines necessary
While Visio Online has been touted as the Microsoft Visio for Mac users, you may find that its newfound compatibility comes at the cost of valuable functionality. With Lucidchart, you never have to worry about reduced functionality or device compatibility between collaborators—our cloud-based software works uniformly across Mac, PC, Linux, Android, and iOS operating systems. With no extra downloads or virtual machines to worry about, you can get down to the business of creating, sharing, and presenting your diagrams.
Stop training and start creating with Lucidchart
We believe that diagrams that are easy to understand should also be easy to make. Visio requires considerable time and resources to learn before you can even start reaping the benefits. Lucidchart is designed to help users, no matter their level of experience, easily create diagrams for business, education, or technical purposes—without the massive learning curve. Our drag-and-drop shapes, completely customizable templates, and automated features can help you create even the most complex diagrams faster and easier than ever.
Collaborate instantly with stakeholders—anywhere, anytime
Gone are the days of updating, saving, and sending the same Visio file back and forth between stakeholders. With Lucidchart, you can invite all of your collaborators to work on the same Lucidchart document, where each revision and comment is saved and synced automatically. Our cloud-based software supports real-time collaboration, whether you’re working in the same room or across time zones, meaning all of your edits, comments, and chats are updated on your collaborators’ screens instantly.
Improve, don’t lose, your Visio Mac diagrams
Making the switch from Visio to Lucidchart doesn’t mean you have to start from scratch. Use our import feature to move all of your VDX, VSDX, and VSD files over to your Lucidchart account for continued editing. If your co-workers haven’t yet made the switch, you can also export your Lucidchart diagrams as VDX files for enhanced collaboration across platforms. Even with a free Lucidchart account, you can use our diagram software as a free Visio viewer for Mac, making your work accessible anywhere, to anyone.
Access, edit, and share your diagrams with powerful integrations
Lucidchart features dynamic integrations with Microsoft Office 365, G Suite, Jira, Confluence, Slack, and other popular apps. Share and present your diagrams even more efficiently than you can with Microsoft’s own Visio. With our Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint add-ins, you can leverage the flexibility and power of Lucidchart to enrich text-heavy documentation and give context to your data. Automatically sync and back up your work in Google Drive, or use our Slides, Sheets, and Docs add-ons to easily insert your work into any document.
