I am using Libreoffice 5.2 (also tried 5.3 and 5.4 beta). I want to paste chemdraw16 structure file (.cdx/.cds/ .cdxml) with paste special. After I paste it shows a blank box, upon double clicking it opens proper structure in chemdraw (if used special paste with "CS ChemDraw drawing" format). I tried using the extensions mentioned in earlier posts but nothing seems to work. I also tried to install a open office extension in Libreoffice, but the installation failed. Is there any way to directly paste ChemDraw file to Libreoffice?

Those paste works fine with MS word and also with Apache Open Office.
