I have been trying to find anything on the forum but my search-fu has failed me. What is the easiest way to import PDF text into RW. I have large blocks of text I want to put in but it does not always copy over very well. I am working on entering Shadowrun with another user and I am having all kinds of issues getting the topics to look good and clear and concise. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The easiest way is to cut and paste stripping format. Then add back in bold or italic or whatever by hand.

Ctrl Shift v will open an prompt that has options for stripping format and removing break lines. This is the fastest way.

One thing to remember is pdf does not display text. You will see varied quality of pdfs. The quality of the cut and paste has nothing to do with Realm Works and everything to do with the pdf file itself and the nature of the pdf technology.

Where ever possible I recommend finding JSON or CSV formats for your data. Not going to be available for 98% of content but its starting to be common for newer stuff.

For one book i used an ocr reader to skim over the pages. Also useful is sometimes the pdf reader foxit it has an okay option to select text
no idea if adobe reader does the same nowadays. I stick to the tool i know
