    File names are too long

    While ripping a Classic CD collection, we found that the pathnames are getting too long.
    The reason is that some titles have insanely long names.

    To prevent this in the future we must use the programmable actions:
    Is there a way to trim the title from the right (left letters are deleted).
    And what does the formula for the title look like?
    Thank you

    Do you want to trim like this (for Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict)?

    1. Several Species Of Small Furry Animals

    OR

    Look here for Naming Programmable Actions: dBpoweramp Naming

    You could use [RIGHT]count,string[]:
    e.g. [RIGHT]40,[title][]

    That's exactly what we were looking for.
