Pros

I loved the finish of the design, and the fact that they had the gridlines to guide placement. Alignment of the shapes were so easy, and loved how customizable it was.
Very easy to use with excellent collaborative features. Nice bright and modern UI.
This was a great product if you're looking for something to do very simple flows and charts in. Price point is great, and the free version still allows to use most features.

Pros

Lucidchart is definitely one of the best diagramming software out there and it is very beginner friendly. This is shown in the fact that 99% of the Fortune 500 companies use LucidChart.
The cost of Lucid chart for the tools and benefits it provides can not be beat. It is an amazing inexpensive tool that helps my team visually document processes and make improvements.
This is super user-friendly and easy to use and share documents and flowcharts with your entire team. Just started using it with a vendor and quite impressed.

Cons

Lack of features advertised would be included. Lack of tutorials in the software.
Sometimes the lines between connections didn’t land where I wanted them or changed shape and that was frustrating.
Occasionally, when I'd try to "tweak" a little place on my project it would mess up the whole thing.

Cons

The inability to select multiple objects and drag around as you would expect is annoying. The auto-resize when insert into documents and update is pathetic.
The object limit on the free version seems way too low. Sometimes it's hard to register a click on the right element, but no worse than any others.
The number of symbols was limited at first, but that seems to be increasing. Page layout can be confusing until you get used to how the product handles.

Lucidchart

Great tool for ERD creation -- free for students!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Lucidchart was so much easier than any other software that I used (Draw.io, Creately, PowePoint) and had the added bonus of exporting the diagram to actual databasing syntax. It was so easy to work with and I would heartily recommend this to anyone looking to create an ERD. The other best thing is that it is free for students! I was able to use my university email and my project benefitted greatly.

Pros

This made it so easy to create sleek and readable ERDs. For a course on databasing, I had to create a complex ERD. Lucidchart made it easy to drag tables around, connect tables to illustrate their relationship type, and edit text. It also exports the image to formulate the basic SQL syntax for creating the tables themselves.

Cons

My only complaint is that Lucidchart mixes notation from Crow's Foot and Chen's notation, making some aspects of the design slightly confusing based strictly on the theory of ERDs learned in class.
