Embedding Graphics in OCR Text Output

You can use your mouse to select a rectangular picture region from within any image in TopOCR's Image Window. To do this, depress the left mouse button and and drag the mouse to create a rectangle around the desired picture region. Then release the mouse button to create the new picture. You will then have to perform a Edit->Copy operation from TopOCR's Image Window to copy the image to the clipboard. Then place the cursor in the location in the Text Window you wish to copy the picture to, and click on the Text Window's Edit->Paste menu to paste the picture into the text.

The primary use of this feature is to copy photographs or illustrations contained within a scanned image into the text output.
