If I were to use Notepad++ then the find regex would be:
([x\-*]\d{1,4})?(\d{3,8})


So it ties the 1-4 numbers immediately following a x (or X as Notepad++ normally case insensitive), a - (this is a meta character so needs the escape char to make it a normal char) or a *. Having them in a group with a ? allows for non capture if the line doesn't start with the x, - or *. The second group captures between 3 and 8 numbers.

Now this all works as expected in Notepad++, however sometimes these don't translate well across the various regular expression engines. As you haven't provided that info I can't give you an answer specific to your need.

Also I note you seem to want to "mask" the 3-8 digits. As it stands my 2nd group will just support replacing with a fixed number of "*", so some adjustment would be needed.

Hopefully this has helped you though to continue with a final solution.

Terry
