Would like two captures that already exist to also be offered as one combined feature

Allow capturing in a region to use Panorama and (this is the new element) capture the characters within the pull down window as characters instead of capturing them as an image.

I am not asking or expecting the text to have any special formatting, of course if they could be captured as seen that would be great, but just getting the text has a value.even if you only get it as a vector. Thanks

Hopefully you are aware that after you capture the image you are typically able to select around a text area and right-click. One of the options should be to Edit Text.

SnagIt text capture utilizes ABBYY for ORC.

ABBYY is a pricey stand alone application with a lot more than just ORC capture.

With ABBYY's Screenshot Reader being one of the tools.

It  does time delay captures, Area, Window etc.
It will capture just the text. Copy it to the clipboard,WORD and other locations.
It will capture an image and open it in the ORC editor, save to clipboard and other options.

I believe this is what you're seeking.

I don't know why ABBYY would ever lease rights to this tool to TechSmith, or at what cost.

Theres a standalone version you can purchase for just $10.00.

I've never ran the stand alone version without the suite, so I don't know exactly whats offered.

I run the full version, ORC to editor is sent to ABBYY's editor. Clearly, you won't get ABBYY's editor for $10.

Theres a free trial, you may want to give it a whirl.https://www.abbyy.com/en-us/screenshot-reader/
