Thanks for posting in the Lucidchart Community. I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your SVG export. I can confirm that Lucidchart's SVG export feature exports text as paths. If the ability to export an SVG with text is something you'd like to see supported in the future, please submit a feature request form. Ideas and feedback submitted to this form is passed directly to our product team for consideration. I apologize for any inconvenience.
