I've got a problem with my new chemdraw version (16.0). At first it does not offer me the "save as" option for any file at all, I can only access it via Help and search for the term. Once I try to export the file as an eps, I'm not able to manipulate it (e.g. with LaTeX) afterwards. When I export the same file with my old Macbook (Chemdraw 15) the manipulation works just fine. Also the shortcut (cmd+shift+s) does not open the save as dialog, but opens a dublicated version.

Is this an internal bug or do I need to change some settings?

I'm running MacOS Sierra on a Macbook Pro (2016)

Thanks for you help

I ran into the exact same problem. Not being able to save as instead having to make a copy and then saving that one is more time consuming, but at least it works.

For the creation of .eps files, the files created with 16.0 simply didn't let themselves edit by the LaTeX package chemnum while those created with 15.0 did. Really strange.

Do you know if theres a solution to this already?
