A data extractor is a named set of settings that define how to convert table data into CSV, TSV and other formats.
Data extractors are applied when table data are copied to the clipboard or saved in a file.
Note that for certain formats (CSV, TSV, HTML and custom formats), it may be useful to define more than one data extractor - each with different settings.
When you select an extractor in the list, you can view and edit the extractor settings in the area to the right.
Use (Alt+Insert), (Alt+Delete), (Alt+Up) and (Alt+Down) to create, delete, and reorder the extractors.
