Word loses snap position on screen after updating object in document

Hi, I have noticed quite annoying problem with windows 10 snap. When I write chemistry papers I use ChemDraw to insert chemical structures. So the problem manifests when I do following:
1) I snap Word window to left side (Position does't matter problem occurs regardless of window position as long as it is snapped).
2) In word document I have ChemDraw objects (chemical structures shown as images).
3) By double clicking structure in word document ChemDraw opens and I can edit structure.
4) I close ChemDraw window thus updating structure in Word document.
At this point word window looses its snap position and is placed as far as I can tell in some random position on screen.

If I word window isn't snapped to position word retains it's size and position after object update. In other words problem occurs only when snap to position is used.

I'm not sure if this is ChemDraw object related or win10 snap problem in general, but I know that I didn't have same problem with Windows 7 and Office 2013.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem.

I'm using windows 10 pro, Office 365 and ChemDraw 16
