Finally, I got success. However, simply closing Logos and re-opening Logos did nothing to the resources hidden.

I had to re-boot the computer before they were removed from my library. Latin and Spanish resources now moved. Going to work on Perseus-Greek now and that's 404 resources so it will take a while.

Sure wish it worked just closing and re-opening Logos.

Could I confirm that hidden resources:

1. Are actually removed from your hard drive, thus reducing the size of your Logos library (and index, when you re-index).

2. Are not re-downloaded the next time you sync.

Yes on both counts.

I have had a sync hiccup once where my hidden resources were downloaded and then not applied to my library. It was on a new install but the normal behavior of hiding is that the books are removed from your hard drive and indexes and aren't re-downloaded until you unhide them.

Excellent, thank you Kevin. I really want to clean up my library by removing a lot of the light reading, devotional literature, and commentaries I never use.

Mark Barnes:
I've always thought it impossible to hide multiple resources, but I've recently discovered a workaround which hides up to 10 resources, which whilst far from perfect might help somewhat.

Great idea, thank you, Mark.

But what about if I want to uhhide half of Perseus? Then what? I guess Logos thinks that we can only read one book at a time Wink

Rosie Perera:

If you right click on one title in the Library and open it in a floating window, then Alt-Tab (in Windows) back to the Library and click successively on other titles one by one, it will open each of them into that same floating window group, including way more than 10 titles. Then you can Shift click on one of them to drag them all into Hidden Resources at once. It's a bit cumbersome, but it does reduce the amount of precision dragging you need to do.

I found a tweak to Rosie's idea that I hope works for everyone:

1. Open Library and search for what you want to hide (e.g. "Perseus Greek" or "Perseus Latin")

2. Right click on one title and select "open in floating window"

3. Move the floating window to the right and the library pane to the left, so you can see the open arrow/triangle next to book titles

4. Click on the open arrow/triangle in the library of the next resources

5. Repeat that down the library pane until you get to the last one and then get ready for the surprise: it brings the next title up!

6. Leave your mouse there and just keep clicking until it won't let you click no more - there is a limit of 37 (?)

7. Shift click drag from the floating pane to program settings hidden resources.

Repeat about 35 times and Perseus Greek will be hidden.

Cheers!

Thanks again, Mark, for this great tip. I just cleaned up over 100 resources. Your method was a lifesaver. Smile

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the tip. I tried it and it works. Still tedious but it works and I have now hidden all the Perseus collection works to which I don't care to have regular access.

I also discovered, quite accidentally, that you need only highlight the resources in the library (no more than 10, contiguous or non-contiguous) and drag them to the hidden resources section of Program Settings.

Again, thank you for your help.

grace and peace,

Don

This doesn't work for me - only one resource is dragged and hidden. Are you sure it works for you? If so, what version of Logos are you using? Windows or Mac?

Yes, it certainly does work for me. For weeks I hid sources one at a time. Then I became frustrated and just let it be until I read Mark's tip. Then I tried to hide multiple resources using--I even tried hiding more than ten but that didn't work. But, yes, I did hide ten resources at a time. Now all the resources I wanted to hide are hidden.

My version is Logos Bible Software 4.5a SR-1 (4.51.0.2057) and I am a Mac user.

grace and peace

Thanks Mark - this enabled me to clear out all the Latin resources very quickly on a wet Easter Monday. Not that I have got anything against Latin resources, I just don't need them at the moment!

You'd think Logos would have a simple list you can (un)check as it suits you. I tried this convoluted way of removing excessive resources and it just doesn't work. Either the instructions are flawed or I am. Either way, it doesn't work.

Anyone know how I get my money back from Logos?

I got caught out at first because I tried clicking the name of the book in the Library list. If you right-click on the Library icon and select "open in new tab" and click on the "Author" column instead of the title the instructions work fine. Mark actually produces these tips without any reimbursement apart from his own satisfaction and our gratitude, and I'm very grateful to him for this particular technique.

By the way, this trick is soon to be no longer necessary. The beta version of Logos 4.6 has a new feature where you can select multiple books at once and drag them all to Hidden Resources together. For further details, see http://community.logos.com/forums/t/52637.aspx and http://wiki.logos.com/Logos_4.6_Beta_2.

Rosie, can you confirm that it works the "other way" too - can you select multiple resources in the Hidden list and drag them back to the Library?

I haven't upgraded to it yet, but I could have sworn I saw someone else mention that it does not work the other way. However I can't find that post now.
