First let me say that I absolutely LOVE this application. It is unbelievably useful and has saved me countless hours. I have also used quite a few other file renamers and this one is BY FAR the best I have tried so thanks so much to the creators.

My question is about removing hyphens from filenames. I know there has to be a way to do it but when I add text to a replace method that includes a hyphen that I want to replace the filenames that should be effected are ignored. For some reason AR doesn't seem to recognise hypens and I desperately need to be able to do this.

This is also true in the case of double hyphens where I want to replace instances of 2 or more hyphens with a single hyphen.

Thanks for any help

I am glad you like the software :-). I do my best to create a product of high quality.

I must say I am not able reproduce your problem. Both ' and " are replaced perfectly. Something else must be wrong with your configuration. You are welcome to send me a method list file (.aren file) or a screenshot, then I can try ti figure out the problem. You will find my email address under Support.

Thanks for responding so quickly.
Those are both examples of quotation marks I was referring to Hyphens "-"
specifically two hyphens "- -"
A common task I need to perform on filenames is removing instances of multiple hyphens and replacing them with a single hyphen.
Cheers
