    Hello Richard,

    We currently do not have that feature - I have raised a feature request for it, and our developers will advice on its possible implementation. 

    In the meantime, using your form's source code, you can implement the String Substring Javascript method as shown here.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance with a possible workaround using your form's source code:

    1. What form do you want to implement it on?

    2. How would you like the output?   - copy into another text field/innerHTML?

    Looking forward to your response.
