4.4 Batch Rename

Batch rename is located under the Edit menu and can be used to edit any field in multiple documents at once. It can also be used to batch edit any property of sequences within an alignment or sequence list.

Existing fields can be replaced with a combination of values from other fields (e.g. Name replaced with Organism and/or Accession), and fixed text can be added to the beginning or end of existing fields.

The advanced options (under the More Options button) enables the use of regular expressions to replace a specific part of one field with another property or text string. Click the Help button in this section for more information on formatting expressions.
