Is it possible to do the following:

I want to remove all highlights, notes, tags, etc, on anything in my library.  Basically want to start over with the software because I've developed a new system and want a clean plate.

Let me know.  Thanks!

There isn’t a button. Just start deleting.

If you're wanting to remove all tags from your books, open your library, make sure it's not filtered, use Cmd+A to select every book, then with the info panel open, start clicking the little red X (only visible on hover).

If, on the other hand, you're talking about annotations, then open the Notes tools and once again make sure it's not being filtered in any way. Use Cmd/Ctrl+A to select all notes and choose delete from the bulk actions pane at the right. Note: these can still be retrieved from the trash unless you choose "permanently delete" (in the trash).

If you also wish to get rid of all user documents, select all (or filter to specific types if you wish) then right click to choose to delete.

FWIW, this sounds pretty radical to me!

Thanks for this information.  I have asked for something like this a number of years ago.  I am probably not as logical or systematic as most of you.  my focus changes and learning increases I sometimes just want to start over.  I had some bad theology in tags and just want to start afresh. 

The focus was Arminian thinking, now Calvin observation/quoting. 

I also wish I could have a filter to just to search just the books that would be included in all the different types of editions as the "starter" or "bronze" editions in Logos.  (long story as to why)

Sometimes you just want to start over!

OMykeO:

You could manually tag each resource from the list at https://www.logos.com/basepackages, but it wouldn't help for resources you bought as a Logos 7 (or earlier) base package, or an Extension library (particularly, if you want to tag the resource with the package in which it was originally purchased).
