I'm using Automator and I need help with the Getting Specified Text action.  I need to get text after a line of text that will always be consistent.  For example, I need the line of text that is after "The code is below:". "The code below" will always stay constant but the line of text after will always be different so I need to get that text and copy it.  Any ideas on how to do so, sorry I'm kind of new.

    The Get Specified Text action just returns the text that you specify in the action's text field.


    You may be able to use the Filter Paragraphs or Run AppleScript actions - what is the text (HTML, plain/rich, etc) and where is it coming from?
