It has vast library of shapes and templates, it allows to modify template according to your requirements. Arrows can be easily used, it provides option to jump arrows, layers may be used for better diagramming.

Cons

While working in a browser, you can only create charts; web application cannot work offline. Some templates are not easy to use but tricky and need time to understand. It provides insufficient icons and not allow to search icons externally, icon cannot be resized as well. You cannot arrange the layer as a whole.

Lucidchart has saved me so much time. It is easy to make professional looking workflows, quickly.

Lucidchart has saved me so much time. It is easy to make professional looking workflows, quickly.

Pros

I have tried all the top workflow solutions - none compare to lucidchart. The tools are so easy to access, they work so intuitively, and the ergonomics of the system are perfectly tuned. I don't waste time having to fix arrow directions or ensure things are evenly spaced. So simple to create professional diagrams.

Cons

I don't like the post-it notes feature, as i cannot add a line spacer with the return key (it automatically finishes the note)

I love a lot of things about Lucid. It's easy to learn and pick up. If you're confused about how to do something, there's always a little help section with some quick tips for shortcuts.

Lucidchart seems to have everything I'll ever need

Reviewed on 04/11/2022

Excellent.

Excellent.

Pros

Super easy to get started and there are a huge amount of objects to choose from. Being able to create flowcharts with customers in real-time is so helpful. I previously used OpenOffice and LibreOffice draw with third-party objects for network diagramming but these are very clunky solutions compared to LucidChart.

Cons

Our customers and I struggled with the URL sharing of diagrams so resorted to exporting to PDFs and emailing.
