    'Acquire Text' from Scanner disappeared from Menu (Word XP; Windows XP PRO

    I know there is a thread on this, but no solution I can find in it, so I'll try my own...

    I use the HP scanner with Word (and use OmniPage Pro 11 as well)... it was easy as pie to insert text from the scanner before ... but now the "acquire text" has disappeared from my file menu. Don't know where it went; don't know how to put it back, but I want it back! Checked macros to no avail.

    Can anyone assist, please?

    Hi Art:
    I'm guessing on this, because I don't have a scanner <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>. The software that came with the scanner probably put an add-in in one of the startup folders. If you can't find it in either the startup folders or the templates folder, you might get it back by reinstalling the software. (Or it might have modified normal.dot & then you deleted & recreated a new one??)

    Hope this helps.

    Phil and Art,

    OmniPage modifies Normal.dot to add a module with Omnipage_OCR, among other things.

    There may be a simpler solution, but reinstalling OmniPage fixed it when this happened to me.

    Thanks! You are brilliant, and reinstalling OmniPagePro did it; but you have to have Word open at the same time as Omni Page for the install to work! The lounge is great!
