    I've been trying take a screenshot of the "about" page in WP because I needed to copy and paste some info's from it.
    So, I thought, why don't I try to use this Office Lens?

    I import the document into it, then export to OneNote, but there still no way to copy text from it, as it is saved in a note as a picture! The OCR works good, because if I search some text from the picture, it find out that text, but there's no way I can copy it...any tip?

    It's not up-to-date, but its still relevant.

    You'll have to use the desktop OneNote to extract the text

    You can't do it with your phone? Isn't this a bit silly?

    No. OneNote on WP needs to be improved, along with Office.

    An OCR option should be available. Try right clicking the picture. Are you using OneNote 2013? If not then you can download it for free on onenote.com
