Hi I was wondering if there was a way to easily remove word/s between [ ] such as using regx or patterns?

For example I have a movie that when I first originally named it I had
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory [40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition] (1971)

Now when I include that movie in the list of other movies I just want that movie (and others like it) to be renamed like this
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory [] (1971)

Wow I kind of feel dumb now. I didn't realize it would be that easy

Don't beat yourself up - it isn't terribly obvious how "Remove" works with non-numeric parameters.

Hi Mark, if you have multiple files with different characters between the [] marks you can use the replace option. in the box "text to replace" use [*] and leave the "with" box empty this will remove the brackets and anything in between
