Gliffy Now Available for Microsoft Word 2013

Gliffy for WordIf you’re a Gliffy Online customer, the possibility of adding Gliffy diagrams, flowcharts, and org charts to Microsoft Word docs has probably already crossed your mind.

Now with Word 2013 you can use Gliffy right from within Word.

With Office 2013, Microsoft is introducing Apps for Office and we’re happy to tell you that the Gliffy app is now available for Microsoft Word. We’d love it if you would give it a spin!

  1. Go to the Gliffy for Word page in the Microsoft App Store and click Add.
  2. In Word, Go to Insert > Apps for Office > Gliffy.
  3. Log in through your favorite social tool or with your Gliffy Online account. If you’re not already a Gliffy Online user, you’ll be granted a free 30-day trial.
  4. Browse through your saved diagrams and follow the Edit link, or click Create Diagram to launch the Gliffy editor in Internet Explorer.
  5. To add any diagram to you Word doc, click Insert, then adjust the behavior of the diagram as if it were a regular image.
