Added “Copy Text From Image” entry to image context menu. (#27513)
This is not working for me. I read the issue report to see if there was something “special” I needed to do and didn’t find anything. Looks like when I right click an image, the context menu should have an option to copy text from image but it doesn’t.
That’s a MacOS only feature. That’s why.
I don’t know why they didn’t added it on the changelog to make it clear when it is obvious it would cause confusion.
if you see in the PR/Issue, you would have noticed it only has the label OS/macOS to specify it is not just for desktop but only for mac as well. But it also includes only the QA Pass-macOS label, which means it was only tested on it to make it clearer, but normal people wouldn’t research that so Brave should have added it even if the Issue name doesn’t include “MacOS only”.
But for example, $match-case is only used in Regex rules but you don’t see ‘regex’ in the changelog, you only would see it in the issue/PR made for it, so people won’t know that either unless they research a little more, which makes it bad, since most users won’t research or now how to research.
It would be surely better if Brave team would specify things more in the changelog rather than just use the issues names and move on.
I saw the macOS tag but also saw the OS/desktop tag and figured it was for all. I did see the macOS only issue, but thought since that was from January they pulled in all desktop OS for release. The test cases only being on macOS didn’t register at all.
The first part I would do it’s the second part that gets me.
Yeah it takes half a second to add in parenthesis with MacOS only on it to avoid confusion, since this is something so specific to a platform.
I rolled my eyes when I saw that changelog entry, because I know it sounds like a good feature to test, so it would be a disappointment for Linux and Windows, because Brave made it seem like it was for everyone, well even for Android users, although Android users still have google lens and yandex and other companies with features like that to extract text from images.
I haven’t a clue and it is not like I can test or anything.
I tried searching Brave Help Center and Brave GitHub Wiki for information but couldn’t find anything. Of course, as mentioned previously, I might not know how and where to search, especially on GitHub. Over a year of looking and that site still confuses me! Half the time I don’t know what I’m looking at.
@justsomeone1 As mentioned, I did follow links. In any particular issue, the only tab I can grasp for the most part are the “conversations”. The “commits”, “checks”, and “file changes” are a nightmare.
I have actually used some information I found in the file changes tab and even posted that information on community topics. But as a general rule, I just don’t understand what I am looking at.
I do wish there was a step-by-step with pictures and links to relevant information “for dummies” on the various things you might see in an issue report. I have tried going through GitHub, and external documentation, but I get lost, overwhelmed, and confused (as usual). Although I think I have learned a little, just by desperately trying to help community members with issues, I know I haven’t even put a dent into understanding how GitHub works!
As an aside, have to mention one more thing that I found funny… looking at “conversations” on issue #27513, I see my profile picture in the last posted comment. I guess someone was testing or something… but still, was funny seeing it there.
Sorry for the long-winded post. And I think this was probably off-topic for the most part, related but off-topic. I tend to do that! Ugh. lol
Of course, I don’t care much about Apple or what they do, but must be easy to find more info or more user friendly information about it, than developer information.
But pretty much seems like is handled by MacOS and iOS, so I guess Apple for years has worked to make it decently enough, so it should be okay to use, they even say it can work offline but we have to guess ‘real-time’ might be better in many or most cases.
