could u please advise.
I sometimes copy text from the web, and want to paste it in a folder; but i want to have an option to remove certain words like "Default or Beta or Multi or etc" and also remove " .,[]{}()-_ "
And want to replace these with " SPACE "

eg:- John.2021_Multi-Smith => John 2021 Smith

thx in advance

Something like this?

Code: Select all

string:=Clipboard
replacements:=".;,;[;];{;};(;);-;_;Default;Beta;Multi;etc" 
loop, parse, replacements, `;
	StringReplace, string, string, %A_LoopField%, %A_Space%, all
loop
	StringReplace, string, string, %A_Space%%A_Space%,%A_Space%, UseErrorLevel
until !ErrorLevel

sendinput, % string
