This is a work in progress, keep adding more examples...

This article is a collection of examples of rules for various common tasks. Another set of examples specifically with a use of Rearrange rule is a available in a separate article: Rearrange Examples.

Remove first word separated by spaces

If the words are separated by spaced then you can use Delete rule, by deleting everything up to the next space.

  1. Delete: Delete from Position 1 until Delimiter " " (skip extension)

Alternatively, this can be achieved with a RegEx rule:

  1. RegEx: Replace expression "\A[^\s]+\s*" with "" (skip extension)
Input Output
Example File Name File Name

Remove first 3 words separated by spaces

If the words are separated by spaced then you can use 3 Delete rules, with each one deleting everything up to the next space.

  1. Delete: Delete from Position 1 until Delimiter " " (skip extension)
  2. Delete: Delete from Position 1 until Delimiter " " (skip extension)
  3. Delete: Delete from Position 1 until Delimiter " " (skip extension)

Alternatively, this can be achieved with a single RegEx rule:

  1. RegEx: Replace expression "\A[^\s]+\s+[^\s]+\s+[^\s]+\s*" with "" (skip extension)
Input Output
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog fox jumps over the lazy dog

Remove last 3 words separated by spaces

If the words are separated by spaced then you can use 3 Delete rules, with each one deleting everything up to the next space, but operating in "right-to-left" mode.

  1. Delete: Delete from Position 1 until Delimiter " " (right-to-left) (skip extension)
  2. Delete: Delete from Position 1 until Delimiter " " (right-to-left) (skip extension)
  3. Delete: Delete from Position 1 until Delimiter " " (right-to-left) (skip extension)

Alternatively, this can be achieved with a single RegEx rule:

  1. RegEx: Replace expression "\s*[^\s]+\s+[^\s]+\s+[^\s]+\Z" with "" (skip extension)
Input Output
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog The quick brown fox jumps over

Swap names around as "Last, First" to "First Last"

  1. Rearrange: Split by exact pattern of delimiters ", ", New pattern "$2 $1" (skip extension)
Input Output
Last, First First Last
Smith, John John Smith
Mc Donald, John John Mc Donald

Change date format from DD-MM-YYYY to YYYY-MM-DD

  1. RegEx: Replace expression "\b(\d{2})-(\d{2})-(\d{4})\b" with "$3-$2-$1" (skip extension)
Input Output
