Batch rename stacks


Mar 31, 2009
Lightroom Version
Lightroom Classic version 9.4
Operating System
  1. macOS 10.14 Mojave
Is it possible to batch rename stacked/grouped images?

Simple example:
Five stacks with 3 images shown in the library window, all expanded. A total of 15 images shown.
I want to rename the files within each stack as a group all in one go. Rename to something like:
'nameofstack1_01, nameofstack1_02, nameofstack1_03
'nameofstack2_01, nameofstack2_02, nameofstack2_03


I know I can select all images within a stack, rename, then move onto the next stack and do the same with a minor name adjustment, but I want to do them all at once - for a large batch of images, several times.
