On September 22, 2015, the first day of Office 2016 production release availability for Office 365 subscriptions, we downloaded the new 32-BIT Office applications to a desktop PC running W7 SP1 64-bit. The installation appeared to be successful and normal. (Note: This machine also has Office 2010 Home and Student installed.)
In 32-bit OneNote 2016, we are looking for the ribbon entry "Insert > Scanned Image" in the "Insert Images" group. It is not there. But the online help documentation (after discussing the many virtues of being able to insert scanned images) plainly shows the "Insert > Scanned Image" button on the "Insert" tab's ribbon just to the right of "Insert > Online Pictures".
We have gone into "File > Options > Customize Ribbon > All Commands" to try to find this command to add it to the "Insert Images" ribbon group, but we can't find it. Possibly it is named something unusual, but we're looking for commands starting with "Scanned" or "Insert" and don't see anything promising.
This is a VERY SERIOUS ISSUE for us because we scan archival records routinely. At best, this is a missing ribbon button which is at odds with OneNote 2016's own online documentation. But at worst, this is a loss of functionality, because this option is still available and working on our 32-bit OneNote 2010 on this PC and our 32-bit OneNote 2013 on another PC.
We do see the note in the online documentation that scanning isn't available if you're using 64-bit OneNote on a 64-bit version of Windows, but that is NOT the case here. We checked the version of OneNote via "File > Account > About OneNote" and it displays
"Microsoft OneNote 2016 MSO (16.0.4229.1024) 32-bit
This exact problem was documented in other forum threads during the Office 2016 preview period and those questions were never answered. Those "preview" forum threads have now been converted to read-only.
When will this functionality be added back into 32-bit OneNote 2016?
This is a show stopper for us! Please Help!!
