OK, thanks... I'd forgotten about that use, with a _single_ forward slash -- because I've only used the "forward slash character-delete" operation for deleting long strings of characters.

In any case, I would prefer a "Warning message" (rather than an Error message) that would appear _only_ when a Rename-type of command was applied -- if the new name included one or more _single_ forward slashes... For example, a file name that includes your phrase:

"ZTW- Rename Mask to delete specific characters in the file/directory name.txt"

Yes... I'd forgotten about the "Next Page >>" link at the bottom-right corner of the Forum Index page.
