More ChemDraw issues

If you are planning to buy the latest version of Microsoft Office you might want to think again. From the Cambridgesoft website

"Microsoft removed the ability to retrieve the original chemical data in pictures pasted into Microsoft Word when they released Microsoft Office 2008 (if you copy and paste a structure in Word 2008, for example, into ChemDraw, you can't edit it). We clearly do not support this decision, but we have little influence over Microsoft's development activities. If you preferred the old behavior in Microsoft Word, we strongly recommend that you contact Microsoft and tell them that. Until/unless they restore this feature in a future version of Microsoft Word, you will need to save the ChemDraw files as separate documents. Of course, if you continue to use an older version of Microsoft Word that has this feature, you can continue to use it as you always have."

You can of course start using iWork!
