Is there a way to extract text using the built in OCR capability?

Operating system


Joplin version


What issue do you have?

I'm playing around with the built in OCR feature and the search function seems to work great. Now is there a way I can copy and paste the text that I find within images and pdfs?

I use this manual process:

  1. For image, I have installed OCR plugin, using it you can copy & paste text from image after run OCR process.
  2. For PDF, I can go to the viewer sidebar and copy & paste text as well.
    I do not know if there is another simpler way, but this is working well for me.

Ok yea I was curious if this would work with the built in OCR function, rather than a plugin. I'll give the plugin a shot.
