I just typed about 60 characters but they never posted when I clicked submit. I have Windows 10, and am using Chrome. All is up to date.

I will copy and paste this.

In a nut shell office 2010 home and student with onenote does not allow for OCR to fix errors.

I have spent hours so if someone can sell me if my set up is capable and maybe a tip to get it working I would be very grateful.

I have already mentioned to you that some users have been having issues with "disappearing text" when posting to BleepingComputer, and that "some" includes members of staff.  Thusfar we have been unable to determine a root cause.  For those who are experiencing this with any regularity we suggest that you always do a select all (Ctrl+A) and copy (Ctrl+C) prior to hitting the "Post" button.  If the post has disappearing text then immediately edit it and paste what you just copied.  It always seems to stick when doing an Edit.  With any luck the root cause will eventually be determined.

 

OCR means "optical character recognition" and is not connected in any way to spell check, which is what it sounds like you're describing.  If that's the case, see these DuckDuckGo search results for options on how to fix issues with spell check in Office 2010.

Sorry if my reply was acerbic. I guess I was just ruminating. 

Re: OCR and OneNote,I have no issue with spell check, it is that I am unable to create OCR with OneNote as MS says one can.

I was just looking for some guidance.

I don't use OneNote at all, so am not familiar with its OCR function.  I generally use OCR on PDF files that were scanned during the "image only" era but that contain text in them that would be searchable if scanned now with OCR at the time of scanning.

 

Something in these search results may help.

I prefer to complete a thread I begin.

I used the control panel>programs and features>MS Office>rt click>change and enabled OCR..

Now when I insert a document to OneNote, I copy paste in Word. I double click it and the doc is able to move characters around.

​Perhaps this will help someone else.

 

Please consider solved.
