Need to create flowcharts but don’t want to deal with the finicky positioning of shape objects and arrows? Then Textographo is for you. Textographo is a unique flowchart tool that uses text. All the user needs to do is type out their chart in a specific text syntax that uses hashtags, keywords, and some markup. Textographo takes this text and turns it into static and animated diagrams that include flowcharts, mindmaps, organizational charts, decision trees, and much more.
Flowcharts are an incredibly powerful tool. They lay out complex processes into a much more simple and easy to understand manner, and complicated projects don’t seem so scary anymore. We’ve just discussed the best options for online-only flowchart services—some are completely free, and others offer just free trials of their premium plans. But like everything in life, you get what you pay for. That’s why we prefer Lucidchart when making flowcharts online.
The oval flowchart is used to represent the start and end of a process. Use the flowchart tool to drag and drop one of these bad boys and you’ve got yourself the beginnings of a flowchart. Use the same symbol again to show that your flowchart is complete.
Which flowchart shape should you use? If you are new to flowcharting, the large number of shapes can be intimidating. You should care because knowing how to flowchart is like having access to a Universal language which makes it possible to communicate all sorts of things with all sorts of people, and that’s pretty cool.
If you need to create a flowchart on your Mac to show a workflow, program, product, or service process, then you need a tool to do it. While you can use Pages to create very basic flowcharts, you might need something more robust.
Lucidchart is one of the best and most reliable online flowchart makers available. The fast and fluid drag and drop interface makes it easy to create and manage flowcharts. There are pre-made templates to choose from, or you can start with a fresh blank canvas. Even free accounts get access to basic shapes, arrows, and text boxes. That is enough to get started.
