Formatting flexi task comments with regular expression

Hi All

Hope someone can help me, as I'm struggling with regular expressions. (Nintex on premises, SharePoint 2013).

In my workflow I have a flexi task which asks a Reviewer to choose an outcome and add a comment. I then have a 'Set field value' control to update these comments on the original form:

workflow

This adds the comments to the form in the following format, which looks rather messy and difficult to read:

Lastname, Firstname (Outcome) Date Timestamp - Date Timestamp (Lastname, Firstname) Comments

 

I would like the above to look like this:

Lastname, Firstname (Outcome) Date Timestamp:
Comments

 

I've tried using the regular expression, with guidance from this remove approver comments thread, but I'm stuck.

I tried the following pattern but when I run it, the result is the same as the input text

\s[\w-]*\s[\w-]*\s\(Not\sRequired\).*

 

Can anyone help with the correct expression or highlight what I'm doing wrong?

 

Thanks

Sean
