Export Your Lucidchart Documents

It can be helpful to export your work to different formats for ease of sharing, publishing, and printing. Lucidchart allows you to export your documents as PDFs, PNGs, JPEGs, and SVGs as well as VDX (Visio) files and CSVs of shape data. Read on to learn how to export your documents to these different file types.

To export a document as a PDF, PNG, JPEG, or SVG file, follow these steps:
  1. Open the document you would like to export.
  2. Navigate to File > Download As and select your desired file format.

    Are you exporting a multi-layered document? To export each layer on a separate page, download your document as a PDF and select “Include Layers” next to “Document Page(s)” in the download settings. You can find more information about downloading multi-layered documents here.

    If you want to export only certain pages from a multi-page document, select the pages you want to export by clicking the drop-down menu under “Document Page(s)” and then select the check mark(s) next to the pages you want to export.

    If you only want to export a portion of your document, download your document as a PNG, JPEG, or SVG and select the “Custom Crop” feature found under “Crop” to choose which part of your document you would like to export.

See the Process Diagram Import from CSV article for more information about the shape data.
To export a document as a VDX file, open the document and navigate to File > Download As > Visio (VDX). Your document will download as a VDX file to your local device.
