The Editor

The Editor is the interface used to create and modify the training of an extractor. The Editor allows you to customize data column attributes and how data is extracted from a website. It is important to understand the Editor's layout to greatly simplify the extractor building process.

Accessing the Editor

There are two ways to access the Editor: you can either create a new extractor or edit an existing extractor.

Click New Extractor (1) to create a new extractor. Once a URL is entered, the Editor interface will load.

To edit an existing extractor
