    Great tool. Just about to publish my first two novels in February.

    Wished I’d known about this before.

    I’ll certainly be using it for the outline of my 3rd book.

      Well done one the completion of your novels and thanks for your comment Lee ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the heads up on this free tool, Rob – it will enable me to include flow charts in my ebooks and courses – very useful!


    • Rob January 12, 2017 at 2:17 pm #

      Yes, it’s great for that Stuart. Appreciate your comment ๐Ÿ™‚

    A great tool and two free lessons in one! Thanks Rob

      Thanks Joe, appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

    Rob, after watching the video I went to the web site, Lucidchart is very comprehensive and integrates with all sorts of applications. AWS (Amazon Web Services) and UML (Unified Modeling Language) are two that I had a look at. Definitely a replacement for Microsoft Visio if people use that.

    • Rob January 12, 2017 at 2:17 pm #

      Yep, it’s excellent Andrew. Glad you like it!

  8. Rob January 12, 2017 at 1:01 pm #

    Thanks Rob, for this really useful info. Funnily enough I was walking my dogs in a very rainy Devon earlier thinking that I need to find a tool online that would allow me to do exactly what this does, so the timing could not have been better.

    • Rob January 12, 2017 at 2:16 pm #

      Perfect timing then – hope you didn’t get too wet! Thanks for your comment ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Rob, Great tutorial and tool. Will give it a go. I have been using a Free mind mapping software for a couple of years now called Freemind.


    • Rob January 12, 2017 at 5:22 pm #

      Yes that’s a good one too Jack. Thanks for sharing and commenting!

  15. Bob January 12, 2017 at 5:24 pm #

    Hi Rob,
    this takes the “imagination ” out of design as you can see it clearly in two dimensions. It makes any thing clear to do.
    Very good work on your part for finding this for us. I will definitely use this.

  16. Melanie January 12, 2017 at 5:41 pm #

    • Rob January 12, 2017 at 7:34 pm #

  17. David January 12, 2017 at 7:01 pm #

    Such a great brainstorming tool, releasing the burden of retention. Many thanks.

    • Rob January 12, 2017 at 7:35 pm #

      I like the way you’ve put that David – glad you like it ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Mike January 12, 2017 at 9:50 pm #

    Hi Rob,
    Nice tip from you and a cool video tutorial – and free. Thanks.

  20. Mal January 13, 2017 at 3:53 am #

    Hi Rob,
    just another option I found recently which is very similar.

    This is a software download.


    I have used this to create some flowcharts for some eBooks.

    Does a pretty good job.

    Free or Donation.

    cheers, Mal.

    • Rob January 13, 2017 at 7:28 am #

      Thanks Mal, always nice to have choices. Thanks for sharing!

  21. Andrew Baber January 13, 2017 at 10:55 am #

    Great share Rob, really useful as you say, wish i’d had it years ago when I was making many process maps for electronic tools. I managed with Paint Shop Pro, but this is really easy

    • Rob January 13, 2017 at 12:47 pm #

      I’m sure it would have been great for that. Good to hear from you here on the blog Andrew ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Tony Crofts January 13, 2017 at 11:37 am #

    Thanks for this Rob

    I’ll be using it for storyboarding videos and perhaps for book planning.
    Hopefully it will paste into Scrivener to make things easier.
    Looks to be much easier to use than Visio, as Andrew said.



    • Rob January 13, 2017 at 12:46 pm #

      Thanks for your thoughts Tony and glad you found this useful ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Simon Oliver January 13, 2017 at 3:15 pm #

    Great tool Rob. I shall definitely be using it. Thanks.

    • Rob January 13, 2017 at 3:59 pm #

      Fabulous Simon, hope you get a lot out of it and thank you for commenting ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Brendan C January 13, 2017 at 5:43 pm #

    Great free online tool.will test it out.

    I use other free Mind map called Mindomo at first and found it easy to create for online tutorial even better I can use desktop app if pay upgrade $29 because I uses premium now.

    Tips: inform them you are doing for educational purposes so get good discount prices.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Rob January 14, 2017 at 6:15 pm #

      Thanks Brendan, appreciate you mentioning Mindomo. Always good to have options and discover new tools.

  25. Peter Castle January 13, 2017 at 9:15 pm #

    Hey Rob,
    Thanks for the heads up…Love it…

    • Rob January 14, 2017 at 6:14 pm #

      My pleasure and thanks for saying so Peter.

  26. Philip Lord January 14, 2017 at 12:28 am #

    Excellent Rob Thank you for your Brilliant presentation Looks like a very useful tool for Mind Mapping flow charts and presentations

    • Rob January 14, 2017 at 6:14 pm #

      Absolutely! Good to hear your views Philip, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Marie January 14, 2017 at 3:10 am #

    Hey Rob that is a very simple tool, thank you. And also thank you for all the obvious and more subtle training you give in your videos at the same time. You really lead the way.

    I was thinking that after you download your flow chart you could delete it and be able to make more charts utilizing your 3 freebies over and over again. Long term it would be better to subscribe but initially that could be a good way to go.

    Cheer, Marie

    • Rob January 14, 2017 at 6:13 pm #

      Glad you noticed Marie, you’re the first to comment on that! Yes, you can do a lot with the free account. I will probably upgrade as I like to pay for things I find really valuable but either way it’s a great tool in my book.

  28. Rob McLennan January 14, 2017 at 3:50 am #

    Sure looks like a tool I would have loved to have had years ago when I was doing that kind of ops management work manually on gridded paper. I shall have a go at the sofware version of that 3ft wide roll of paper.

    Thanks Rob.

    • Rob January 14, 2017 at 6:12 pm #

      Haha! Thanks for the comment Rob ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Joseph W Stasaitis January 14, 2017 at 8:08 pm #

    • Rob January 16, 2017 at 9:29 am #

      No worries Joseph, thanks for commenting.

  30. Kobus and Henriette January 15, 2017 at 12:37 pm #

    Thanks so much Rob! We will certainly make use of this very useful tool!

    • Rob January 16, 2017 at 9:28 am #
