Getting started with Flowcharts

Here's a quick start guide to help you get the most out of Whimsical Flowcharts.

Making a Flowchart

Once you are in Flowchart mode, you can get started!

There are a few ways to make your first shape:

  • Use the Add Shape option by selecting it from the toolbar
  • Use the keyboard shortcut S

Fun flowchart features

There are some really cool options in the toolbar including:

  • Changing the colour and the shape of an element
  • Changing outlines
  • Adding transparency

It's easy to edit the text as well:

  • Increase and decrease font size
  • Change the text position
  • Apply bold or italic styles

Use the quick connectors to build a Flowchart fast or try Alt/Option + arrows to supercharge the process.

Spice things up! You can add icons and images to your Flowcharts as well...
