With paid Evernote does it do OCR on Local Notebooks?

The OCR process is a server function; notes have to be uploaded to the server    
   
btw  The latest Evernote product (v10) no longer supports Local Notebooks   
         The Evernote Legacy product still supports Local Notebooks

If on legacy (which is still available), no OCR on local notebooks.

OCR is a server based function. And anyhow, it only serves to build the search index - it is not for extracting text from pdf or pictures.

Is this also true for mobile? I'm frequently in locations with no internet access (no phone service at all), if I cannot have my notes locally on the phone, they are completely unavailable (not good!).

Side question (as I'm searching for the answer elsewhere on the forums): is it still possible to go back to the 'Legacy Version'? I bookmarked the directions on how to do it and now that I'm on a new computer (& need the directions), it appears that the thread has been deleted.

Offline Notebooks are supported for all devices      
The data is stored on the server, with a copy maintained on the device

This is different than Local Notebooks where the data is not stored on the server

Just a hint: Currently search on mobile does not work in attachments. Even if a pdf is completely readable (OCRed, by EN or by another service; or by creation), it’s content is not searched.

This was confirmed to me by EN on my support ticket - no time until a fix known.

I regard this as a severe shortcoming for any offline use of the mobile client.

Is this just for offline use or is this in all of the mobile apps?

Just when using it offline, on downloaded content (mobile app/ settings/ notebooks/ offline notebooks). Online it searches on the server, no issue then.
