In addition to importing Visio Stencils, SVG files, and images, you can also create custom shapes in Lucidchart.

Create a custom shape

  1. Create a custom shape by making a change to a standard shape (e.g., combining multiple shapes, changing the shape size or color, or adding an image to a shape).
  2. If you're combining multiple shapes, select all of them, then right-click and select 'Group'.
  3. Right-click again and select 'Add to Custom Shape Library'.

  4. Choose an existing shape library where the shape will reside—or create a new library—then click 'OK'.

Manage and share custom shapes

  1. Manage your custom shapes by clicking on the 'More Shapes' button in the bottom-left corner of the Lucidchart editor.
  2. Find your custom library under the 'Custom' category, then select it.
  3. Right-click on a shape to rename it, move it to another library, or delete it.
  4. If you're on a team, you can choose to share your custom shape library with your team by switching the 'Team Sharing' toggle to 'On'.
