Truncate without the first part of a text


Is it possible to cut first three characters from a dynamic text?

Example, instead:

  1. First example
  2. Second example
  3. Third example

TO be:

First example
Second example
Third example

Yea just use the syntax :truncated to 3

Well, is not that easy, here we need to exclude first 3 characters, not to leave them as the value. :smiley:

Use truncated from end.

Identify the length of the string, then use length -3 for the trunc.

Dynamic text has 17 different-to-length variations :smiley:

Can’t be calculated from the back of the value…

Well you are clearly not giving us enough information. Good luck!


Hi there, @conesult… if you do a find and replace with this regex pattern, you should get the desired result.

It’s a simple pattern, but if you want to copy and paste it, here you go: ^...

Hope this helps.



Why can’t it?..

Of course it can be calculated from the back of the value (just like Troy suggested, and the length of the string doesn’t matter), so pick whichever solution you like better, @another.


Unless you are now going to reveal more information that makes both of those suggestions invalid, and at that point, like Troy said, good luck.
