To install the Lucidchart integration for Microsoft Word, you’ll first want to open the Word program itself. Open any document and then navigate to the Insert tab near the top left corner of your screen. For both PC and Mac users, you should find the Add-In tools here somewhere in the middle of the Insert ribbon. Click the "Store" button to open Microsoft’s Office Add-Ins Store.

For PC users, if you don’t see the "Store" button here, just navigate to the File tab in the top left-hand corner of the screen. At the end of the file menu, you should see the store button, right here at the bottom of the screen. Once you’ve got the add-in store open, you should see the "Lucidchart Diagrams for Word" add-in near the top of the suggestions but if not, that’s ok, just type “Lucidchart” (with no spaces) into the search tool to find it. Once you’ve found it, just click "Add." After you click Add you can access the add-in here in the Insert tab ribbon, either under the My Add-Ins drop down menu or on the far right-hand side of the ribbon.

To use the add-in, just click the Add-In button and you’ll notice this new add-in pane for Lucidchart pops out. Here, just select the diagram you want to use and then click Insert to insert the diagram into your document. Note: if you make any changes to your diagram, you’ll want to come back into your document and re-insert your diagram.
