returns the test of the Nth paragraph in the string. N is zero-based, i.e. the first paragraph is .paragraph(0); empty paragraphs are ignored. If the string does not contain N paragraphs, the result is an empty string.

If N is negative, Tinderbox counts from the last paragraph. Thus, $Text.paragraph(-1) is the last paragraph in the text.

For example:

$MyString = $Text.paragraph(2); 

sets $MyString the the contents of the third paragraph of $Text—recall at N is zero-based, so counting 0/1/2 means 2 is #3 in the sequence.
