Any reason to NOT hide original language resources if you don't know the language?

Reading through the thread about library bloat ( http://community.logos.com/forums/t/38954.aspx), I noticed that quite a few people hide the targums, manuscripts, and other foreign/original language resources.  I had refrained from hiding mine under the assumption that they somehow got utilized by some features (such as Bible Word Study and others as described in some recent blog posts about Perseus [ http://blog.logos.com/2011/09/the-lsj-receives-a-massive-update-with-the-release-of-perseus/ and http://blog.logos.com/2011/09/how-the-perseus-classics-collection-can-transform-your-textual-searches-in-logos/ ] ).  Is this not the case?  Is there ANY reason that I should keep non-English resources in my library if I don't know the language?

possibly not, however I keep them, because I use the interlinears, whilst trying to learn NT Greek, but was contemplating the same with my hebrew stuff..

I guess the next step will be to hide the lexicons too.

That's kind of the situation I've run into with the new Perseus; I have 2 nice arabic lexicons with no arabic language resources to 'lexicize'.

Logos does not explicitly utilized them in Guides unlike the Reverse Interlinear bibles, for example - they are treated like any other bible you have.

Thanks Dave, that's what I was wondering.  I guess I'm off to hide some resources then! Wink

I'm surprise no one has mentioned the real reason to not hide resources. Library Count.

Of course I suppose with PBs Library count becomes less relevant as it takes into account personal not files and other "non-resource" items.

LOL Stick out tongue

Yes, but USEFUL library count is more important to me than just having a high number of resources that are useless (to me).

I have never heard of such unreasonable rational. :-)

The pain of Hiding Resources is another example of how Logos makes easy things difficult. 

One at a time, no real-time indicator that they are hidden, no mult-select, no hiding via "hidden collections", no right-click. Just drag, drop and hope that some of the 50 latin boorks or targum fragments are hidden after your restart.

The reality is like Kknight78, I don't really want all of these items hidden, just maybe grouped (plus sign expand) in the library view.  Individual books no plus sign, commentary sets and other multi-volume sets with an expandable plus sign gouping.  Hasn't this kind of thing been done since 1978?

really Logos?

Oh Peter ... that was by plan. Read Bob's previous posting on Hidden Resources. In fact most of the Logos4 make-it-difficult routines are not that way by accident. When you're the best in the business, everything is by plan.

Yes I don't always agree with the plan, particularly some of the timing but there is a plan & it's bigger than 3 points.
