Selecting a specific line from google docs

Is there a way to select the second line in your google docs as a source of information to input within a record. For example, I want the second line that I write in google docs to fill out the “subtitle” field.

Yep - this is possible, but not without code and skills. Briefly…

  1. Create an Apps Script in the Google Document that parsed the DOM of the document.
  2. The Apps Script would seek out the subtitle field object and tease out the entry.
  3. The Apps Script would then call to a Webhook action in Airtable which would open the appropriate table and insert the record with the subtitle value in the desired target field.

I don’t have coding experience? Is there any alternative way to do this? Or directions I can look at?

Thank you, all the best
