How to Extract Text in a Group

Hi Sirs,

Does anyone know how to extract text from a group? Is there a plugin that can help?

As shown in the image below, the full resume content is in a group with several text fields and repeating groups. Is there any method or plugin that can extract all the text from inside this group?

Hello @wenhao.yu ,
Thank you for contacting us.

Could you please provide more details on your requirements? Specifically, where would you like to extract the information from, and in what format (e.g., text, PDF, etc.)? We need these details to better assist you.

Also, if you are looking to extract the information as text for later use, you can create a custom workflow that collects text from each element within the group and combines it into a single text field.

If you have different requirements or need further assistance, feel free to let us know.

Best Regards,
Anton

Hi AntonZ

The information I want to extract is in a group that contains several repeating groups and fields. Just like the below image:

Currently, I use the below 2 plug-ins to copy and paste context to the target fields. But I wonder is there other methods to achieve the same function.

Hello @wenhao.yu ,
Thank you for the additional information.

We have a free plugin called Air Copy to Clipboard that can be used to copy and paste content, which might simplify your current setup and potentially replace the two plugins you are using.

However, if you prefer to achieve this without using the copy-paste method, as mentioned before, you can create a custom workflow. This workflow would gather text from each repeating group and field within the main group and combine it into a single text field or any other location where you wish to save the extracted information.

If you need any further assistance or have additional requirements, please let us know.

Best Regards,
Anton

Dear AntonZ,

Thank you for your suggestion ([Air Copy to Clipboard]). However, I found that it can paste into input fields, but not into multiline input type fields. Am I correct in this observation?
Is there any setting that would allow me to paste into multiline input fields?
