An engineering solution for copy & paste interoperability between Office for Mac and ChemDraw

ChemDraw version 12.0.2 provides chemical information to Office for Mac through the supported PDF image format, and Office for Mac 2011 version 14.0.1 implements changes that support this use of the PDF image format. Results include improved copy & paste interoperability between Office for Mac 2011 version 14.0.1 and ChemDraw version 12.0.2: users can edit chemical structures in ChemDraw, copy and paste those structures from ChemDraw into Office 2011 documents, copy those structures back to ChemDraw from those documents, and continue editing those structures in ChemDraw.
