Microsoft OneNote for OS X has been updated with OCR support letting you copy and paste text from your images.

Capture your thoughts, discoveries, and ideas with OneNote, your very own digital notebook. With OneNote you can seize that moment of inspiration, plan that big event, or track that list of errands that are too important to forget. Whether you're at home, in the office, or on the go, your notes are available to you on all your devices.

Your Notes… Your Style
Type anywhere on this free-form canvas and easily rearrange and move your content to any place on the page. Style your notes as you wish. Make your notes bold, italicized, or colorful and organize your content with tables.

Capture Anything
Add pictures of recipes, your PowerPoint doc or PDF for school, links to your favorite sites, and web articles for future reference. Capture it all in OneNote and add your annotations.

Powerful Organization
Organize your notes in a way that works best for you. Create, rename, search, sort, color code, and copy pages, sections, and notebooks to organize your content as you'd like. Keep your private notes safe.

Tag It
Easily tag your notes so they stand out. Track a list of your daily to-dos, flag questions to raise after a meeting, or mark the important points from a lecture.

Think Together
Share your notes with your friends and colleagues, whether it's a party your planning with others or a school project you’re working on with your group. Work together in a shared notebook at the same time.

Always With You
Access your notes on your Mac, iPhone, iPad and other devices. Your notes are synced to the cloud (OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint) making it easy to access your recipe notes on your iPhone at the store, your homework on your Mac in class, or your itinerary on your iPad during your trip.

What's New In This Version:
• OCR for Images - Search for text contained within images in your OneNote notebooks. OCR is now supported on new images added to OneDrive notebooks. You can even copy the image text and add it to your notes. Existing images will also become searchable soon!
• Hide authors - You asked, we listened. Now you can hide author initials in shared notebooks from the View tab.
• Close Window - This has been a popular request. You can now close the OneNote window without quitting the app!
• Bug fixes

You can download Microsoft OneNote from the App Store for free.
