Replace Method
Text to be replaced: S(\d)(\d)E(\d)(\d)
Replace with: - s\1\2e\3\4 -

Source file = Text here s01e01 more text here.ext
Output file = Text here - s01e01 - more text here.ext

Source file = Text here s01e01 .ext
Output file = Text here - s01e01 -.ext

Note the trailing space disappeared in the second example, any way to fix this?

Honest question, in second example where the episode number is at the end of the file, why do you need trailing dashes and spaces after the episode number?

The trailing space is retained when I reproduce your examples.

A neater way of adding the hyphens is:

Replace: "(S\d+E\d+)"
with: "- \1 -"
