Delete Rule

DeleteRule.png

This rule will delete all characters located between the From and the Until positions. Optionally, it can delete from the specified position till the end of the name.

The parameters are as follows:

Parameter Details
From From which character-position you want to start the deletion.

Select from the following options:

  • The starting position (count starts from 1)
  • The delimiter from where the deletion starts.
    • The delimiter can be a single character or even a string.
    • Typically , . / ( ) - and space are used as delimiters.
Until Till which point you want to delete:

Select from the following options:

  • Count: Specify how many characters to be deleted, starting from the FROM position.
  • Delete till a specified delimiter is reached.
    • You can use two different delimiters in From and Until sections.
    • The delimiter can be a single character or even a string.
    • Typically , . / ( ) - and space are used as delimiters.
  • Delete all characters till the end.
Skip extension If this check box is unselected, the extension will be included in the rule.
Right-to-left If you select this option, ReNamer counts the position from the extreme right. (The From and Until positions switch places.)
  • When this option is selected, the "till the end" option in Until deletes all characters on the left (what we regard as the beginning of the name)

For example, to keep only the four characters on the right side of the name (and delete all the rest of the characters on the left), use:

From Until
Position 5 Till the end
Do not remove delimiters If you select this option, the delimiters themselves will be retained.
  • If you have used two different delimiters in From and Until sections, both of them will be retained.
