Question:

Why can’t ChemOffice+ Cloud find the structures in my MS Office documents created on Mac?

Answer:

While ChemOffice+ Cloud is available for MacOS X, it can only find the structures on MS Office documents created in Windows.
Because MS Office for Mac does not currently support Object Linking and Embedding (OLE), the pasting of the structures is done in a different way, making the parse impossible for ChemOffice+ Cloud.
PerkinElmer is actively working to improve copying structures from ChemDraw for Mac to MS Office to make the parsing possible in a future release of the software.
