Question how to subctract a part of filename ??

Hi to all

I'm trying to import some ebook in my library.
Using regular expression to exctract author and title from filename ((?P<author>[^_]+) - (?P<title>.+)) work fine but I need to subctract a string from filename that is not part of the title but it repeat in all filenames.

Under an example:

David Green - The great war (philiph collection)

importing this ebook the result is:

Author: David Green ....that is ok
Title: The great war (philip collection)

I need to avoid the string :"(philip collection)" from all imported ebook.

Is there a way to do that ?

really TnX in advance for help.

The bulk metadata editor has a search and replace (on a tab).

do you know REGEX ?
\(.+\) should trap the paren and contents, you will need more patterns

theducks is suggesting you remove the offending text from the title after it is imported, by using the bulk metadata editor. Look in Edit metadata > Edit metadata in bulk -> Search and replace.

In your case replacing " (philip collection)" with nothing should be all you need.

Backups are good
specially when trying new stuff.

good luck The nice thing about the Bulk Search and replace tool, is you can see the results before you commit
