How do you save the info field to a text file for every packet that was filtered by the capture filter.

Filtered by a Display Filter?
Export Packet Dissections
If on Windows verify that you're on latest 3.2.4 release.

If you mean "Info Column", and that's the only column you want, you can achieve this with tshark:

Method 1: Specify the column format explicitly:

*nix: tshark -r file.pcap -o 'gui.column.format:"Info","%i"' > info.txt
Windows: tshark -r file.pcap -o "gui.column.format:\"Info\",\"%i\"'" > info.txt

Run tshark -G column-formats for a list of "built-in" column formats. If a field isn't listed, then you can always use the "Some Field","%Cus:someproto.somefield" method for adding so-called custom columns.

Method 1: Specify the fields you want: tshark -r file.pcap -T fields -e _ws.col.Info > info.txt

Of course you can also achieve this with Wireshark as well, but if you use File -> Export Packet Dissections -> As Plain Text... without preparing the column layout first, then you'll be exporting all columns, and not just the Info column.
