OCR options exist - how to switch in "Click OCR Text"

Hi,
I’m new to UIPath. I’m trying to use “Click OCR Text”. It defaults to GoogleOCR. This works fine for the first two OCR items I’m clicking on, but it’s not working for the 3rd so I’d like to use one of the other OCR options - Microsoft (local or Azure), Abbyy, etc to see if they work better. I can’t, for the life of me, figure out how to change the OCR engine though. I can drag the other engine into my sequence, but it’s just the engine. I can drag in a new “Click OCR Text” but it only lists GoogleOCR for the engine, I can’t choose anything different, there’s no drop down or anything to select a different one.

Looking at the various help pages, I know it’s possible, people have mentioned it in the forum as well, I’m just missing something. Can anyone offer screenshots of where I should be looking, or is there something else I need to install/enable, etc.

I’m on Win 10 64bit Enterprise edition, running UI Path 2019.3.0 Community Edition.
Thanks!

Each engine has its own associated activity: https://studio.uipath.com/docs/installing-ocr-languages

Here are all the engines that are part of the Core package in the most recent release:

For swapping to another engine just drop the desired on in the activity, e.g. Get OCR Text after deleting the default:
