Bulk Renaming

Is there a way to rename a group of books by removing x number of characters from either the front or end of the existing name?

You can use a regular expression in Edit Metadata in bulk | Search And Replace.

Search for ...(.*) in title and replace with \1 to remove the three first chars.

Search for (.*)... in title and replace with \1 to remove the three last chars.
