I’m using formatter to find the length of a file name, which is correctly outputting 20 in this case.

I’m then trying to truncate the file name using text formatter with the syntax Output-5, but the result is always empty. If I just type 15 it works well, but that will not work for all file names.

Any ideas how I can get the truncate function to use the length output less a specified number?
