Can't figure out how to remove a space that is right before the extension. (i.e. "Video 1 .mkv" to "Video 1.mkv")

I know it could probably be done with a Javascript, but well, I don't know Javascript and couldn't figure out a way to do it with with the preset functions.

Is there a way that I'm just not seeing or would it only be possible with a javascript?

Remove space char before extension.

FROM:
"Video#1#.mkv"
TO:
"Video#1.mkv"

No JS need but a simple RegEx:

Find: ^(.+)#$
Repl: \1

(Note: instead of an space char, I visualized it by a #-char to make it more outstanding)

But AdvancedRenamer has also a very useful tool for such cases:

Use this method to remove unwanted spaces, dashes, and other
unwanted characters from the beginning and end of the filename.




HTH?

Wow I feel dumb, thought trim would just remove all spaces if I set it to trim spaces, that ones my fault for not reading the docs I guess lol.

Also need to learn more about regEx too I guess...

Thanks for the help though, much appreciated!
