I've tried several way of working around this, but to no avail:

Basically I need for a folder to:

[Detective Comics Vertigo imprint] - Fables - y000 m0 d0 - Babes in Toyland
[
to

[DetectiveComicsVertigoimprint] - Fables - y000 m0 d0 - Babes in Toyland

Just remove the spaces within the brackets.

Thanks.

That was a challenge and a half - but the solution looks surprisingly simple!

Use the Replace method with the following Regular Expression:

" (?=.*\])"

Replace with a blank and set Occurence: "All".

Note that the RegEx starts with a space and don't include the quotes.

It uses a "lookahead" to match every space that is followed by a string of characters ending in "]"
