Is there a fast way to rename multiple plies. For instance I create plies P001 through P010 In SEQ. A and a step value of 20. I discover I need to create a new ply which would be P011but it needs to be the first ply down. So I need to rename all the plies. I want P011 to become P001. Manually renaming is cumbersome and prone to error of course.

What you are looking for is called patterned input. First you need to sort the ply list the way you want it. In your example, either use the Composite Sequence Manager or manually resequence P011 such that it is the first ply in the stackup (lowest step value). Then:
Patterned input also works for Step, so you can adjust all step values to a common increment when you are ready to release your part.
is there a way to do patterned re-naming to follow an alphabetical pattern? I want a group of plies to follow a P010-A, P010-B, P010-C... pattern.
