How can I get round trip editing between chemdraw 17.1 and Powerpoint (for Mac ver 16.3) to function? Stragley enough, the round trip editing in Word (for Mac ver 16.12) DOES work!

Hello,

This is due to a Microsoft update released this year. The change originally broke the copy/paste for all Office applications, but a recent update fixed it for MS Word. Unfortunatelly Microsoft hasn't fixed the issue for the other applications, including PowerPoint.

The following FAQ will be updated once new information is available:
