I thought this used to appear in the Regex Panel but, I am not finding it. How do I remove the first 2 characters from a file?

Try the following:

Search for: ^.{1,2}

and replace with nothing.

Peter.

Thanks

Are there any other settings necessary for this to work? The first two characters are not being removed.
