It's easy to create a new document in Lucidchart. You can start from scratch, select a template from our collection, or use Community examples.


From the Documents list

  1. Select the Documents tab after logging in.

  2. Click the 'Create' button and select 'New Document'.

  3. Select a template from the Create New Document window. The category you select from determines which shape libraries appear in your toolbox, and you can always add more in the editor.

  4. Click the 'Start Drawing' button to open the editor.

From the Community

  1. Select the Community tab after logging in.

  2. Browse the Community by category or use the search bar to locate templates.

  3. Click on the thumbnail to open a page with a read-only version of the template, thumbnails of similar templates, and a short description of the chart.

  4. Click 'Try it Now' to open an editable version in the editor, from either the thumbnail or read-only page.
