Hi,

I'm using OneNote for Windows 10 and dragging foreign language pdfs to a notebook for translation in Google Translate. Some of these pdfs allow me to right click a page, select "picture", then "copy text", and paste the text next to the pdf. This text undergoes OCR, allowing me to paste it into Google Translate and get a translation.

Problem is, sometimes the "copy text" selection doesn't appear in the "picture" dropdown box. Has anyone else had this problem? Please try it on your version and let me know if you see the "copy text" feature or not in your menus. Can anyone explain why it appears in some notebooks and not others?

 

Thanks in advance...
