Is there a way to delete a personal book that I've built?  I used to be able to just right-click on the file and a "delete" dialogue would appear.  But it's not working.  Did this change?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Same issue for me. Right-click used to work. But now I cant figure out how to delete since thats not an option for me.

It's Ctrl-RightClick in the library to show the delete option (more cumbersome you could drag it to hidden books)

Mick, CNTRL + RC doesnt work for me on a Mac. It brings up the same menu as right-click. What else can I try from the Library?

Also, I have a few personal books that have no document in them (they were carried over from Logos 4 when PBs were stored locally only) so they do not show up in the Library, only in the Personal Book builder area. How can I delete these entires?

Often cmd seems to work for MacOS instead of ctrl, but in this case it's opt+right.click see https://wiki.logos.com/Hiding_Books

Select and right-click in the PB builder gives a delete option - at least on Windows.

there's some confusion about purpose here.

If the intent is to remove it from the Personal Books tool then a right click on the title in the (compacted) list will show a "Delete" option (Mac?). The book still remains in Library but you cannot rebuild it.

If the intent is to remove it from Library, then Ctr/OPT + right click on the title will allow you to Hide it, and then it is deleted.

If you do both the PB is (almost) permanently removed. The glitch is that the title remains in Hidden Resources within Program Settings. If it was not uploaded from the PB tool then you can unhide (or delete) it to permanently erase it.
