Hello, all my embedded images in Word (Office 365) drawned with the software Chemdoodle are no more displayed. Instead I have a text : {EMBED CHEMDOODLEOLE.ChemdoodleEmbeddedObject.1}. When I double click on this text, the software Chemdoodle starts and the chemical structure can be retrieved, but not for all the embedded images.
This is the same functionnality when the structure are well displayed. But when I close the Chemdoodle file, the text is still in Word without any image of the structure. Moreover, in a new Word file, when I want to copy and paste a chemdoodle structure, the same kind of text is displayed and not the image of the chemical structure.
In PowerPoint, the structure is well displayed, there are no problems.
I use windows 10.
Thank you for your response.

    Hi @ChristopheM

    Can you tell us how did you insert the images to your documents?
    Do you browse pictures locally and insert them?

    The {EMBED CHEMDOODLEOLE.ChemdoodleEmbeddedObject.1} looks like the field code,please select and right click on it, check whether there is "Toggle Field Codes", if yes, choose it to have a check.

    If the above step works, you can press Alt+F9 to hide all field codes and show the result of the codes.

    Any updates welcome to post back.

    Hi @Emily Hua-MSFT

    Thank you very much.
    I pressed Alt+F9 and all the images were displayed again, instead of the code.
    I guess that yesterday I pressed the same keys by mistake.
