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
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.

Way better than visio!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Love it. I was able to make complex flow charts on my first time using the software.

Pros

Lucidchart is a far superior product to the more traditional flowchart software Visio. The simple layout, easy sharing and the ability to build complex flow charts make Lucidchart the best out there. Additionally, I find the templates for other projects, that are not flow chart related, very useful.

Cons

My only issue with Lucid is that, at certain points, where the details of lines and boxes can get very cluttered, I find it hard to navigate the layers and often end up dragging out boxes and lines that I do not wish to, even though they are not selected originally. This is very rarely an issue and it just takes a few minutes to fix, but it is an issue.

Visualiziation simplified

Reviewed a month ago

Lucidchart is a great option for creating professional-looking diagrams for many types of projects and for most users. It offers a wide variety of diagram types and is easy to use, but users should be aware of its limitations when working with complex diagrams or needing advanced features and functionalities.

Pros

Lucidchart is a powerful and versatile diagramming tool that can be used to create a wide range of diagrams including flowcharts, process diagrams, network diagrams, organizational charts, wireframes, and more.One of the things I like most about Lucidchart is its user-friendly interface. It is easy to navigate and provides a wide variety of pre-built shapes, symbols, and templates that make it easy...

Cons

While Lucidchart is a great tool for creating professional-looking diagrams, there are a few limitations to keep in mind.One limitation is that while it offers a wide variety of diagram types, it may not have all the options that advanced users or specific field experts may need. There are other specialized tools that cater to specific industries or use cases, that might offer more advanced features and functionalities.Another limitation is that the platform may have a steep learning curve for some users. While the interface is user-friendly, it still takes some time to master all the functionalities and features, especially if you are new to diagramming tools.

Simple and easy

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Using this for diagrams to communicate concept for products and workflow charts. This is simple and easy to use, drag and drop elements make this a quicker option than using powerpoint for the same types of tasks.

Cons

If you are using this for simple charts and diagrams, I have no complaints.

Lucid Makes it Easy

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

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.

Cons

I don't like that the files can't be organized within my account.

J.L. Lucidchart Review

Reviewed 2 months ago

Lucidchart is the first software I look to to create any kind of document when following the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) for projects, internal assessments and otherwise. I would recommend it to anyone that is doing Information Technology, Computer Science in the secondary and tertiary system, and creatives alike.

Pros

There is an unlimited size to the size of my document when inserting multiple diagram symbols. To go along with this, when saving my file, I can choose whether to crop the content in the worksheet to the content only or otherwise.

Cons

When my Lucidchart account was created and I my first 3 documents, the fourth document was created but the first document was changed to view-only. That meant that I was not able to edit that document again unless I made a copy of it however the same problem did occur.
