I am unable to edit the ChemDraw embedded Word documents created using Word for Windows on my Mac OSX.
Since the technology is different (OLE editing in Windows and Round Trip editing in Mac) it is not possible to edit the structures present in the Word document (which was created using ChemDraw for Windows and Word for Windows) on a Mac machine using Word for Mac and ChemDraw for Mac.
Currently, it is not possible to edit the embedded structures present in Word (which are created using ChemDraw for Mac on Word for Mac) through Word for Windows as well as embedded structures present in Word (which are created using ChemDraw for Windows on Word for Windows) through Word for Mac with the help of ChemDraw for Mac.
If you want to transfer the structures between Windows to Mac, or Mac to Windows, you will need to transfer the structures as ChemDraw documents.
