Lucidchart Tutorials – Export a PDF, image, or Visio doc


You can publish, print or export your Lucidchart
document in a huge variety of formats, making it easy to use and distribute your work. When you’re ready to export your document,
open the “File” menu and select “Download As.” Or use the keyboard shortcut CNTL (or CMD)
+ D. As you can see, Lucidchart gives you a lot
of options for export. Some of them, like PDF, are pretty straightforward. Select PDF, then under the content heading,
you can select whether to export your entire document, specific pages, or just the page
you’re currently on. If you want to publish a document with layers,
make sure to select PDF, or publish your document to the web using Lucidchart’s advanced share
options, which you can find by clicking the orange “share” button in the top right
corner of the page, selecting “advanced,” then choosing to either publish a URL using
the “Publish” tab, or embedding your document into a webpage using the options in the “Embed”
tab. If you’re printing your document, we recommend
exporting it as a PDF. For extra tips on optimizing your document
for print, check out our tutorial on “Printing your Lucidchart document.” Let’s look next at your options for downloading
your document as an image. Downloading your document as either a PNG,
JPEG, or SVG opens some additional options for your content and quality, including the
option to download the current page with margins, the current page cropped to the content, or
part of the current page. If I select this last option, then Lucidchart
prompts me to drag my cursor over the part of the page I want to export. This makes it easy to export sections of a
bigger diagram. You can also specify the number of dots per
inch from the current zoom level, to 300 DPI. If you’re working with others who still
use Visio, or need to import your document into Visio yourself, you can export your document
as a VDX and open and edit the document using Visio. Finally, exporting your document as a .CSV
will create a .CSV file that includes shape names, shape libraries, text fields, and any
data. Once you’ve selected the format you want
to use, simply click the blue “Download” button and wait for your file to download. To summarize, if you ever need to download
your work as a PDF, image, or even a Visio file, Lucidchart makes it easy to customize
the format of your export so you can use and distribute your work in any way you need.
