I’ll keep this simple. For a long time, chemdraw structures could be pasted into word and PowerPoint, clicked on, and brought back to chemdraw. The same way it works with windows.

The consistent answer support always gives is a generic incompatibility with such and such version of Microsoft office.

Is support actually doing anything to get this working again? The software is expensive and to work on a presentation on a pc, then open it on a Mac and click the structures to open them in chemdraw Mac and it not work is unacceptable after it finally worked for 7 or 8 Years

Yes, I know there is the copy as pdf to word and paste, etc. that is extremely inconvenient when you’re making a PowerPoint presentation and want to paste a structure and then edit if necessary.

It works fine on a pc.

Please don’t give me a generic bs response. I have presentations that are useless since I can’t edit them in chemdraw.

This is a constant problem and again, for the price of The chem office package your team should do more than blame Microsoft and actually fix it.
