    Modi is based on 'old' Scansoft OCR technology and, for what ever reason, (For Example: you have Dragon Naturally Speaking installed - once a Scansoft application, etc.) if the scansoft add-in is left in MS Word 2007 and/or 2003 it 'screwsup' Modi keeping it from functioning properly when you try to transfer the OCR'd material to Word - (this is the answer to the best of my recollection).  Oh, if you want Modi in Office 2010 just install Office 2007 or (I believe) Sharepoint 2007 (free) and only activate Modi during install - Unfortunately everything gets installed on the disk, but is unavailable.  Finally, and my memory is dimming - use the shortcut key combination from Office 2003 to scan an image directly into Word 2010 - Alt(I)sert>(P)icture>(S)can  (this might not be correct, but look it up - it's a three key combination.

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for your post.

     

    According to description, it seems that your issue is more relevant to Word itself instead of Word development. You can consider reposting your problem at Word Answer forum for better response.

     

    Thanks for your understanding and support.
