Delete a certain amount of characters at the beginning of the title

Hello
I love mp3tag but I have a little problem. :sweat_smile:

I need to remove the first characters of the title in thousands of files.
Example:
1 - Track name
2 - Track name

I need to remove up to "# -" so that it remains:
Track name
Track name

Does anyone know if there is a way to delete a certain amount of characters at the beginning of the title?

Thanks for reading my query :blush:

see e.g. here:

Instead of _FILENAME use TITLE and instead of Tag-Filename Convert>Tag-Tag

I tend to avoid regular expressions, because I find them confusing. And so I'd use a simple format value action with the $cutleft function (i.e., $cutleft(%title%,3)). YMMV.

As there are so many ways that lead to Rome ...
You could also try an action of the type "Guess value"
Source: %title%
Target: %dummy% - %title%

would leave a leading space if the data is "1 -"
So probably
$cutleft(%title%,4)
would yield the desired result.

You never have tracknumbers with 2 digits?
