Remove ( ) & everything between

I have a set of books who's title is displayed as "Title (Publisher)"

I need to remove the brackets and everything in between, so only the title is displayed.

I have been fiddling around with “Search and Replace” in “Edit Metadata in Bulk” but have not been able to come up with something that works.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I could not find an answer by searching the threads.

Since parentheses has a special meaning in RegExps, you have to escape them using backslashes to match them:

\(.*\)

A full match could be:

(.*) \((.*)\)

\1 = Title
\2 = Publisher
