There are significant differences between the tools in the newer versions of Excel and the older versions. Make sure that you read the appropriate section below. Most of the editing techniques are the same and are covered in the Editing Excel Flowcharts section at the bottom of the article. Most of the topics described here can also be applied to creating flowcharts in Word or PowerPoint, but in my humble opinion, of all the Office Drawing tools the Excel drawing tools are the most user friendly.
If you don’t mind downloading apps direct from a website, then definitely take a look at ClickCharts for your Mac flowcharts. The app’s interface is similar to Microsoft Word with its ribbon of buttons and tabs for sections at the top. Select the group of shapes you want to use like an organizational chart, block diagram, or flowchart and then click to put them onto the canvas.
The diamond symbolizes that a decision needs to be made. If there are only two choices, you can draw arrows directly from the diamond to the next step (example on the left). If there are more than two choices, you can draw them neatly by copying the example on the right.
