Hi,

I'm assuming that by 'full stops' you mean the '.' characters.

To remove them copy the following into the custom renaiming creator (don't copy the single quotes):

Row: 1
Search: '(?E)\.'
Replace:


The expression excludes the extension because of the (?E) flag. All '.' will be replaced with nothing.

Hope that helps.

Peter.
