We are currently preparing a textbook with many chemical formulas. As a publisher we work in Adobe InDesign 15 (x64). The formulas in the original manuscript were created in different earlier versions of ChemDraw and then pasted to MS Word.

Now we have to fix all the structural formules using ChemDraw 19 Professional (Academic) and after fixing we upload it to InDesign. But there are two proplems occured.

1. After uploading the structural formulas there is an uncorrect displacement of bonds between atoms, it is mapping irregular, not in the middle position. Such problem concerns also names of chemical elements, the letters in wich are jumping and shifting.

2. The cyrillic type font in the formulas captions and titles cannot to be converted after uploading to .eps. Although some captions are displayed correct but the most of cyrillic symbols looks like "2-б ai еёуооi i ё".

Please help us to solve these problems.
