HI,

Is it possible to delete the complete name of a file but the two first characters and the last one, or the first and last one.

thanks

Copy the following into the custom renaming creator (do not copy the single quotes):

Row: 1
Search:
Replace: '*Delete All Characters in*Position*2:-3*'

The above will specify that everything between the first character and the last 2 characters will be deleted. Use 2:-2 to leave the first and last characters.

Press scan and check the preview window.

Hope that helps.

Peter.
