I know this was implemented in L4, but the option is not there in L5.  Selecting multiple resources and dragging them to the "hidden resources" window does not work.  Does anyone know how to do this?  If not, this would be a good suggestion...

    Peace, Tom!                  I have (as of yesterday - 5.0a)            The following is from my Help File....         If it's not there for you, something is wrong ....

How do I remove a book from my Library?

Use the Hidden Resources feature in the Program Settings tool to remove books from your Library (and hard disk drive).

1. Click on Tools | Program Settings.

2. Click the Hidden Resources heading to expand that section.

3. Drag resources you want to hide from the Library panel to this section. (Tip: Open Library in panel next to Program Settings panel.)

4. Restart Logos 5 for changes to take effect. Indexing will run for a short time. (Note: The hidden resource’s book file will be deleted, so if you are low on hard drive space, you can just hide a resource without having to locate its book file to delete it manually.)

5. To Unhide a resource, hover over the resource in the Hidden Resources list to highlight the title, and then click on the delete (X) button. Restart Logos 5 for the change to take effect. After restarting, the resource will be downloaded automatically and reindexed.

Hi Tom,

Actually, I can confirm the same limitation. Are you working on the Mac side?

For clarification, I am using left click and shift to select multiple resources. However, when I drag it is only pulling over the first resource in the list.

Hopefully Logos will bring back this functionality in 5.0a RC2 for Windows and Mac.

Dragging multiple resources to hide them wasn't in L4.  It was done by the accessing the pop-up menu using  "Opt+ RightClick" in Mac or"Ctrl+RightClick" in Windows.  See the wiki:

It works the same way in L5 as in L4.

Thanks, Todd!

The right-click menu doesn't have the option, but Ctrl+right-click does.  I missed that when I first read your post.  It seems a little unintuitive, but it works - didn't see this in the Help file anywhere.

Logos purposely made it hard to hide resources because they didn't want people accidentally hiding their whole library.  Probably why it's not in the help file.
