    With the Note 4, you could use Smart Select and select text on the screen. It gave you the option to extract that text to use some where else. If it was an address, it gave you the option to get directions to that address. If it was a number, gave you the option to call it. Now you can only save it to the gallery, scrapbook or share it as a picture. smh.

    This works for many things where you can't normally select text, but on the Note 4, I was able to use smart select on a picture with text and it would do text recognition.

    I started a thread about this over the weekend and didn't really get any responses. I don't think it was something people used often and doesn't seem like anyone knows a workaround. I looked for apps in the Galaxy App Store and couldn't find anything.

    You can still do it. Write the info, click "More" at the top right, then link to action. It chooses the info with the box and the menu below what you wrote will scroll to the right for more options.

    that's if you use Smart Memo and write down an address or phone number. Before you could do the same thing from the Smart Select feature by selecting a text from a picture, webpage or any app.

    Note 4
    You’ll find the Smart select option in your Air Command menu. Hover and drag the S Pen over any content that you want to capture and share. It will be stored on a kind of clipboard for later use. It can capture text, links, and images all at once. From the clipboard, you can select from the usual full range of sharing options to send it an email, post to social media, or open it in an app. You can also extract text from Smart select content and share it directly with an app, for example an address that opens in Google Maps, or a date that’s added directly to your calendar.

    I never used it but to share a screenshot. Have you called Samsung and asked them about this?

    Yes it was. I've planned vacations using that. I'd find places to go, clip them, then pull them back up and map, call, etc.

    I still have my 4, but bummed to learn it may not be on the 5

    I also miss this feature. I also started a thread about it. Seems like a waste to have removed it.

    Check the more button when you are in the action memo and see if those options are what you want.

    If you write on action memo and then click more you can link to action..

    Also, if you open S note you can download some of stuff that was standard on the previous notes.

    I have never done it from an email, just something I have written on an action memo.

    For clarication, I'm pretty sure we're talking about the text recognition in smart select, not handwriting to text conversion in S note or action memo.

    So on the Note 4, you could get text copied out of a photo? Into a paste-able format?

    If I understand what you're talking about, its in SNote. I believe its called photo select.

    Edit: sorry...this is for the N4
