Live Text allows you to copy text in your photos and take other actions as well. You can use it on your existing photos and you can also capture text without taking a photo at all.

    I notice that if one uses the camera icon in Notes to get to the camera, the function doesn't work - one has to get to the camera from the home screen for the Live Text function to work. Hopefully, this will change.

    This works on my iPhone se 2020 but cannot get to work on my 6th generation iPad wifi only with iOS 15. Will this feature not work on my device?

    How does this work on my laptop, MacPro?

    Peter: It will work in a similar way, but it is part of macOS Monterey. So you'll need to wait for that update to come out.

    Grab/Copy the text from an image on your iPhone and immediately Paste it into a Pages document on your iMac.

    This is a great feature. However, when you copy a page of text from a photo, it puts paragraph characters at the end of each line. So when I paste it into pages, it gets the same line breaks. And I have not found an easy way to scrub these from Pages.

    Carsten: Just select and delete those. Make it easier by turning on Show Invisibles in Pages. You can always use Find with one line return as the Find text and then Command+g to move to each one and device whether to delete, replace with space or skip.
