How do I rename large numbers of documents or sequences?

Use the Batch Rename tool under the Edit menu. This can replace any field with combinations of other fields, new text, and can also perform regular expressions to achieve very complex renaming operations.

    Is there a way to use external files to batch rename? I have a spreadsheet with my ab1 files names and the names I want then to have and would like to use it to batch rename my sequences.

    It is not currently possible to batch rename sequences using an external document.  I have passed this suggestion along to the developers.
