How to split pdf into paragraphs?

Hi All,

I want to split a pdf into paragraphs. I can’t split it using a newline. because, it will result in each line items. I am using “read pdf text activity”

For Eg:


In the above pdf, i need to split into 2 paragraphs


Thanks in advance.

@athirapr After reading pdf split by new line

Hi @athirapr,

After using the read pdf text activity use write line activity and show the output. Based on that I could tell how you could split your text into paragraph.

Hello athira,
You can use the following regex to get all the paragraphs
The paragraphs will come under the matches


I tried your solution.It returns each lines in the pdf not paragraphs.

can you send me the pdf.

i don’t want each lines.I need each paragraphs as shown in the image.

@athirapr You can split by empty line
