Strip Rule


Strip characters from the filename. The rule has predefined character sets, like digits, symbols and brackets, but you can also define your own character set. All occurrences of the specified characters will be removed from the filename.

Character set parameters:

Parameter Details

Strip all English characters.

  • Numbers (0-9) will not be stripped.
  • Non-English characters will not be stripped, e.g. characters with diacritical mark, which are used in many languages in Europe and Asia)
Digits Strip digits.
Symbols Strip symbols.
  • All characters that are considered to be symbols are showed in the box on the right.
Brackets Strip brackets.
  • The content between the brackets will remain unaffected.
  • If you want to delete the content as well, use the CleanUp rule instead.
User-defined Define any character that needs to be stripped off.
  • Note that this is not a string. All characters in the text box will removed individually.

Positioning parameters:
