I've been trying to clean up my library, wanting to remove some things I will not use - at least for some time. I drag the resources into the 'Hide Resources' section, yet the resources still appear in my library list. Am I missing something? I've tried reindexing to no avail.

What you describe should work, so this sonds strange.

What version of Logos 7 are you running and on which platform?

Just for clarification: You also need to restart Logos. Have you done so?

Since 6.3 you shouldn’t have to restart Logos unless the resources are in a layout

Are you seeing this on all resources you try to hide or just some of them?

I'm trying to hide a number of latin and greek resources. Probably over 50. The are listed in the hidden resource box, yet still display as resources in the resource library box. I will take a second look and try something specific.

What I've discovered is that if I move a single resource, it works. If I try highlighting a group of resources then move them, it doesn't work. Do they have to moved individually -- one book at a time?

On another note, does moving these resources to the hide resources section remove them from my hard drive? What can I do if I need to free up some space?

Thanks for your help.

If you use the "drag to hidden resources"-method, yes. Hiding a group of selected resources will work from the library with Ctrl-Right-click, which gives you the option to hide. More details at http://wiki.logos.com/Hiding_books

Yes - hiding them removes them from your hard drive.

Hi Marc: I found that when trying to hide a group of resources it takes time for them to be hidden. I have a fast iMac running 10.13.4 with a SSD and it sometimes will take 5 minutes or more for the library items to clear. It does help if you recycle your library on and off during the process. Also, things will move much faster if you limit the number of items you wish to hide at one time to around 5 or 10. And yes those items you choose to hide are removed from your hard drive. In Christ, Charles
