 OneNote Tips & Tricks: Extract Text from Picture

DATE: Will be calculated from "Release Start Date" field.

What:
OneNote automatically does an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scan on anything you insert into OneNote, so that you can easily extract text from picture in OneNote.
How:
Step 1: Right-click on any picture or screenshot you insert.
Select “Copy Text from Picture”
Step 2: Go to anywhere you would want to paste the text to and Paste.
PS:  To make this even cooler, OneNote will index all OCR results and make them available through the search function.  Simply enter your search query in the search box on top right, and OneNote will automatically find all instances of that term in all of your notebooks. It even highlights the search term in the image!
