How often did you wish that the document you just scanned into your system could be edited. The same with a document you just snipped from the screen.

This little video tutorial is going to show you how to use Microsoft Office One Note to convert any .jpg or .png picture into an editable document.

What if the text is really hard to read ?

Can it read any font, size or colour?

Copy text from image

I watched the tutorial -twice- as I'm prone to making those 'doh'-little mistakes during the simplest task.. But when I copied text from picture in oneNote & pasted it Word, only sporadic numbers,letters, &/or shapes appeared. And it didn't matter how I pasted.. Are my general settings wrong in one of the programs?
Appreciate any help I can get!
Thank you
Kristi

Can you post a sample of the picture you are using. I'll try to see what the problem may be.
