Extracting Dialogue for specific characters

Is it possible to extract dialogue from specific characters only? It is quite a pain to sift through everyone's dialogue to sort them into specific chracter documents.

You could use Ren'Py included "Extract Dialogue" from the launcher to create a .tab file you can then import in Excel, creating a sheet in which you can control what is shown and what is not, or, in your case, who.

To do so I had to tell Excel to look for all file rather than just for .txt when I imported the data, but after that, I believe the result will be satisfying
