Hi folks

Have discovered that in my library of 4000+ books I have a number of identical books that I would like to remove. I have removed some to Hidden Resources and used delete there but some of them keep showing themselves in my library. Is there a way to remove books I no longer require. Help would be appreciated.

There is no “delete,” but only “archive“ ( which is what hidden what feature does).  When you delete from the list of hidden books, they will re-download to your library!

Maybe 'delete' should be renamed to 'return'?

[['delete' from hidden change to 'return' to library - same function just new name]]

I can be particular about nomenclature. The "hidden" book feature should be "archive." Although I haven't given it any thought before now, my initial thought is that "delete" should be "restore." The word "return" has some interesting connotations re:"library," but they aren't related (imo) to what is happening here.

"Return" could be reserved for the day when we can share books with others. Wink

OK, 'restore' and save 'return' for later use.
