Is it possible to download all library - it does not seem to?

And passage guide does not work with all passages in the bible? Daniel (ok) Luke (not) - it says: 'sorry, that reference could not be located'? edited: now this part works!

There isn't currently any "download all" command on Android. There is on iOS so I assume it will be implemented on Android at some stage.

Actually, if you want to be technical about it, Android is 'ahead' of iOS here. Wink

We originally showed the "Download All" button for the entire library, but it was decided that it was/could cause more harm than help. For example, users running out of space on their SD Card rendering their device almost unusable, as ourselves and other apps expect the SD Card to never be full.

As a result, we still show the "Download All" button, but only show it when there are less than 50 resources being displayed.  For example, if you have the Gold Library, type in "series:Early Church Fathers", scroll up to the very top, and you will see the number of resources (9 in that series) and a "Download All" button.

This decision may be "too helpful" for some users, so as always, we are open for feedback!

Thanks for this information - and I do remember this now!

Apologies for providing incorrect information

Thanks David. I just got a nexus yesterday and this is helpful. Cheers.

Hi David;

An enhancement to the "Download All" feature would be to increase the limit to cover a complete commentary series. At this time, I think the largest commentary set in Logos is about 83 resources (AYB). If the limit was increased to 90 or 100, it would allow someone to download the complete series without manually downloading the remaining 33 or more.

Thanks

Personally I would appreciate 100 as a more realistic "download all" llimĺt. It is painstaking downloading all the ICC, Word and AYB commentary series, let alone journals one by one. I like to carry all my library with me downloaded and availble offline for ready use on my ASUS Eepad Transformer Tablet.

So to be clear, there is not a way to download your entire library without going through each book/set? That's a bummer if so. I don't want to have to go through each book to download them all.

The download limit has been increased to 100 in the version currently being beta tested.

100 is a way better download limit...even the recent Spurgeon collection would have been downloaded more easily if this were the case.  I would like to see, as well as the download all button, boxes at the left hand side of the list to enable us to tick which resources we would like to download once we have searched our library and refined it the best we can...there seems to often be something I don't want downloaded, which excludes the usefulness of the download all functionality.  Just a thought from a non-techieWink

We will soon have the ability to manage downloads from within the L4 / L5 library. Basically this will provide the ability to select groups of resources or individual resources to be downloaded to each of the mobile devices we have.

This is currently in beta testing on both L4 and L5
