I'm a new user of ChemDraw, and I have tried to copy/paste my structure into word and just end up with heaps of text like this:

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0E 3.9121 2.7155 0.0000 C 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0E 3.9385 1.8909 0.0000 N 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 4 0  1 3 4 0  3 4 4 0  4 5 4 0  6 7 1 0  7 8 2 0  8 9 1 0  9 10 2 0  10 11 1 0  6 11 2 0  12 13 1 0  13 14 2 0  14 15 1 0  15 16 2 0  16 17 1 0  12 17 2 0  2 18 1 0  18 5 1 1  19 20 4 0  19

I'm not sure what is wrong. I'm using Word version 15.14, and running Mac OSX Yosemite Version 10.10.3.

Help would be much appreciated! Thanks

With ChemDraw 15.1 and Word 15.23 (newest version) i have the problem that even 'Paste Special >> PDF' isn't working. When copieng something in ChemDraw the 'Paste Special' option is greyed out in word or isn't showing the option to Paste as a PDF. Any solution on that Problem?

I have the same problem (ChemDraw 15.1 and Word 15.23). Does anyone at CambridgeSoft/Perkin-Elmer monitor these forums? It seems logical that being able to copy and paste from ChemDraw into Word (and other programs) is one of the most important features. Is there a solution in the works?

BTW - I tried sending a support request about this issue to informatics.support@perkinelmer.com and got these instructions in reply:

1. Launch ChemDraw.

2. Draw a structure like Benzene.

3. Copy the structure and save it is Microsoft Word as Paste Special – PDF.

Took an exchange of EIGHT emails to get the support tech to decipher step 3, only to find his instructions don't work.

I have also the same problem. The "paste as Pdf" is working but if you copy and paste back into Chemdraw, you cannot modify the structure.Another solution that is working for me is to first copy and paste into Powerpoint and then copy and paste agin into Word. This is not satisfactory and I hope this is only tempory problem...

I have exactly the same problem. Copying from ChemDraw followed by trying to paste in Word results in nothing. Greyed out Paste and Paste Special. Same is true in PowerPoint.

I am having the exact same problem. Paste in Word results in a string of letters and numbers, or if choosing "Paste special - PDF", it gives a picture, which looks fine but cannot be edited upon double click. I am running the newest version of the software (ChemDraw 15.1.0.144, MS Office 15.27, macOS 10.12.1). I tried copy & paste on Windows and it works perfectly fine (also with all the newest versions), so the problem is restricted to Mac. This is very important to be, so please help solve this. Much appreciated.

I just downloaded everything updated and it still doesn't work. You can paste special and it will paste in as a PDF but you can't modify. We need this to be fixed.
