Is there a way to change the labor rates from 25 diff classes to 15?

and How if possible.

You can elect not to use some of them. However, if it were me, I would create some duplicate labor departments so that I had more flexibility in the system. There fore I might have Custom Assy Labor 1, then 2, 3, etc.

That way, when I'm working in the custom library I would have a few slots of labor to work with instead of just one.

To adjust the labor departments just go the labor rates tab and re name them there on lines 2, 4, and 5.

Watch the tutorials about labor rates and decide you really want to do this before you decide to. I say that because re naming these departments will require you to adjust the labor factors that relate to these re named departments. Does that help?

BTW, there are a few posts here on labor codes, etc. Wouldn't hurt to look them over a bit.
