Is there Batch Rename option in Book Designer?

Hi There ,
I would LOVE to have an option of Batch Renaming in Book Designer ,
For example :
I open Element Browser and selected Titles , I see 80 Titles in the book with names i.e. :
Good Morning.
Mr. Green.
The Car...

Now , I want to select All Titles and do Batch Rename with wild cards like this :

Chapter ## - %s

And After Clicking Apply to get :

Chapter 01 - Good Morning.
Chapter 02 - Mr. Green.
Chapter 03 - The Car...

Is there an option to do something similiar ?

You really really do not want to do that. The reason being is that a lot of the time these odd titles are not really titles at all. And doing so would really mess up the book. You should be checking out your titles and making sure they are titles or not and if not, fix them to be what they should be.
