I noticed my character recognition/search-in-image was not working the other day also, but rarely use it so let it slide. But now when i quickly checked an old note (over 1 year old) it says '1 image has not been indexed'!

How do you fix this??? cheers

 

-update- so far, and after checking 6 notes, all but one say images not indexed. The other saying all images indexed.

I'd try copying to a new note

Probably a question for Evernote support  https://www.evernote.com/SupportLogin.action

Then follow the advise above by DTLow about how to see whether the picture was indexed.

If it was not indexed, try to open a new note, and copy the pic in there.

Please note that OCR will not read it character by character. It will make a guess based on dictionary information. Thus it will only OCR languages that are in the dictionary. These are currently 28, for handwriting only 11.

I have not found a list of languages in the help base, but you could search yourself, or issue a support ticket and ask whether the language of the document is supported.
