I would really appreciate the ability to choose which resources are downloaded to my computer in the same way that I have to choose resources on IOS. I have a MacBook Air with a tiny hard drive. Logos takes up > 20GB, and I bet I don't use more than 2GB of resources. I'm going through what I have now to see what I can give up licenses for, since that's currently the only way to remove a resource from the desktop version. It would be great if I could individually choose which resources are downloaded, or perhaps even specify that all resources in a particular collection should be downloaded.

I realize this would probably impact indexing and searching, but I would be fine if the non-offline resources weren't even indexed or searched -- perhaps make it optional? I just have so much more than I want, and it's really becoming a problem I have to manage.

Thanks for considering this!

You don't have to give up any licenses; just hide the books you don't need. (But be aware that while it's easy to hide many books at the same time, unhiding them again can currently only be done one at a time.)

How do you hide many at a time? When I'm in the list of resources, I can only cmd-right click on one at a time.

The critical question is, "Does this remove them from disk?" If it doesn't remove them from disk, then my primary problem remains.

Hi Richard 

For details of hiding multiple books at a time please see http://wiki.logos.com/Hiding_Books

and, yes, this removes them from your hard drive.

Many thanks! I'm reindexing after hiding a lot of resources. It's only 20% done reindexing, and I'm already down 4GB.

Is there a limit in Logos5 as to how many resources can be hidden? I have 10 volumes of "The Bible and its Story" than won't hide.

...or maybe it's Logos resources you can't hide?

Hi Richard

I'm not aware of any limit or reason why this wouldn't hide.

I suggest reposting in the Mac-specific forum (assuming L4) at http://community.logos.com/forums/75.aspx or the L5 forum at http://community.logos.com/forums/109.aspx and see if anyone there can comment
