Can someone please point me in the right direction on the regular Expression I should be using to do this in Bulk.

Thank you

Use Bulk Metadata Edit

Field to search: title
Search for:
Code:
(Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi \#\d+\: )
Your Test (optional): Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi #05: Allies

Anything inside paren will be gobbled. escape the # (or any special to REGEX characters). \d+ gets any numbers following. \: gets the colon.
Spaces MUST be exactly placed as exists to make the match work.

BTW :welcome" to MR
