Thank you again Kim Jensen for bring us the Advanced Renamer.

Now I'm trying to remove some parts from the name of the files, parts that between to spaces characters.
Is it possible? I tried the standard remove method, but the numbers of character to be removed are different on the files. Doesn't wirk well counting characters, even backwards.

I think you need to use the replace method. But to be sure I would like to see an example of one of the file names.

Thank you for your answer. Those names are quite the same structure: Cod_Place_##x4.####x6.pdf

Some Examples:
Las Colatina 7143.398183.pdf
Rae JoãoNeiva 1112.547612.pdf
Rae Aracruz 1114.325898.pdf
Lae RicardoHolz 0718.349556.pdf
Lae SãoGabriel 0721.393037.pdf

to be renamed like this:
Las 7143.398183.pdf
Rae 1112.547612.pdf
Rae 1114.325898.pdf
Lae 0718.349556.pdf
Lae 0721.393037.pdf

Thank you one more time...

What you need to do is use the Replace Method and configure it as this:

Text to be replaced: Type a space and a star (*) and then a space again. The star (*) is a wildcard which means it will replace anything between the two spaces.
Replace with: Type a space.
Use regular expression: Make sure it is not checked.
Apply to: Set it to Name.

I just created some files with the names you describe and tried the above configuration and it seems to work.
