The Delete Text Action

The Delete Text Action

This deletes some or all of the text from the selected rename area.

The tick box 'All of the text' is selected by default, and this means that all of the text is deleted from the chosen rename area.

If you un-tick this, you get a standard 'Beginning at' (rename area) option, and a text box where you can specify how many characters RenameMaestro should delete. The absolute minimum value is 1.

After that you will see the final option, the 'Delete x characters' box, which again has a minimum value of 1.
