Dear all,

My first post here, so hello to all.

I couldn't found any topic related to this, so my apologies if it has been submitted before and the answer has already been provided.

This is the problem: we are using Word 2007 and ChemDraw 15. When we insert a CD object (i.e., a structure, reaction scheme) into Word and we double click to edit the object, it opens perfectly in ChemDraw, but the Undo (CTRL+Z) and Redo (Shift+CTRL+Z) options are not available, literally. The options are shown in the menu as not available options, AND the text is changed to Undo/Redo not available.

Please, can somebody give me a hint about why is this happening, and if this has some solution? If you make a mistake you cannot go back.

Best regards,

ChemDraw 15.x not supported with Word 2007.

Please retest the problem with MS Office 2010 (32 bit) or MS Office 2013 (32 bit). You will find more information about the supported environment from the following link.
