Hi David, 

I think you can delete notes in your account page in the Logos website. Look to the far left and click on the link "My Documents".

Hi Bruce 

I can't even edit the personal book because it longer exist on my "Personal Books" settings. I deleted the PB from within but it continues to show up in my Logos Library every time I log back into the logos server. In the meantime I have to hide it. That is the only solution. 

Henry, let me take a few minutes to try to see if we are talking about the same thing. First, you actually can't "delete" a book. You can "hide" it but not "delete" it. I assume that is what you did. Read here for more information on how this works - http://wiki.logos.com/Hiding_Books This will explain things in detail.

If you hid the book you are referring to you would not be able to edit it unless you chose to "unhide" the book. At that time you would be able to edit it as you wished.

Let me know if this helps or if you need some more clarification.

Hi Bruce, 

It was actually a personal book I deleted from my Personal Book Library. After the book was built and tagged, I noticed that the book wasn't tagged correctly so I deleted it. However, the personal book remained in my Logos library where all my other purchases are located.  Essentially the only thing I can do is hide it. So I'm hiding a personal book and thus when I unhide it will appear again in my Logos Library but not in my Personal Book Library. I think somehow it cling onto the server. Because It won't download when I'm off line but immediately when I'm online the book will automatically be downloaded into my Logos Library.  I hope I'm making sense. Below you will see the Personal Book I tried to create by Dr. J. Vernon McGee that is stuck in my Logos Library but is no longer in my Personal Books Library.

For clarification: The book is shown in your Library, but not in your Personal Book Builder Tool. The PBB Tool is where you create personal books. There isn't anything called a "personal book library."

Out of curiosity, what do you mean that it "wasn't tagged correctly"?

Until more recently, only metadata (book name, author, etc.) synced with the server, but in recent versions users can now sync compiled personal books. This is done manually AFTER the book is compiled. Did you manually sync the personal book? 

What happens when you try to open this resource? Does a book open, or do you get a warning? 

Did you hide the book and restart your computer before unhiding? 

Why are you unhiding the book if you want it deleted?

After the book was built it didn't link some verses. The text when converted was not spaced properly.

I'm taking it that's what happen. I think I clicked on the "Upload" link on the Personal Book Builder Tool. Is this what you mean by "manually sync"? If by clicking this does my personal books go into my library on the Logos server?

The resource will open as a normal book if unhidden. I hid the book and restarted and tried every little trick I could.

I want to delete from my Library but I cant. It's no longer showing in my Personal Books.

The personal book builder typically works well when given a good source document. If the reference is explicit (i.e. "John 3:16"), it almost always works. When the reference is less explicit (i.e. "In verse 16 of the third chapter of the beloved disciple"), the link isn't going to work.

Yes.

When you compile the .docx file, it is added to your library on the local computer. When you press the "upload" button, it will sync with the servers so that the book is available on your other computers. If you only have one computer, there is no reason to press the "upload" button. NOTE: personal books are unsupported on mobile devices.

I want to delete from my Library but I cant.

The book IS "deleted" from your library when you hide it... it is NOT deleted from the servers. EDIT: The same is true when users delete note files. The "deleted" files remain on the servers, but are only shown in the "deleted" view of the website.

Again, for clarification, the proper terminology is the "personal book builder tool."

So once it's in the server any deleting has to be done on the Logos side I take it. I didn't know that was going to happen. ouch! 

Do you know if a representative can delete the personal book from my account?

As far as I know, Faithlife hasn't addressed this issue... I think you are likely stuck... although I don't know why it should be such an issue. If you have the book hidden, it is removed from your local installation and shouldn't appear in any other installations.

FL probably does need to create a method for users to delete uploaded resources from the servers.

Alabama24, thanks for your follow-up. Ya hopefully they create a method in the near future.

Deleting personal books is on our (long and growing) list of things to address in the future. Can't say for sure how "near." In the meantime, hiding is your best option. Sorry for the inconvenience.

My question is related tp deleting personal books

Is there any  new development in this area? I am trying to delete duplicate copies of personal books that I have created. As I was amending the books I created, I usually delete the previous books before I compile the new ones within the environment of the personal book builder page. However, I discovered that the books that I deleted are still there. Deleting from wthin the persoanl book envirnomnet does not get rid of them. This week a friend who is a Logs user advised me to delete them using the setting from the tools menu. I did try to drag them to the hide the resource box and delete them from there using a right muse click. This did not work for me. In my PC I see the two options when I click the right muse. The hnuid and delete options are avaialabel. But I do not see the delete option in my iMac computer. Is there any advice you can suggest? Or do I need to wait for a better solution from Logos or is there a solution for this? Thank you

Hello all, 

Any new news on this topic? I have (4) old Personal Books that still show up after deleting then from PBB. They still show in my resources. I just want them gone. 

I've tried the tricks on this thread and nothing works.

Can you state exactly what you have tried because deleting from the PBB tool does not work!

Hello Dave, 

I tried this: "If you remove them from the Personal Book pane, then Hide them, restart, unhide them, then restart, they are gone for good. And, you don't have a bunch of unnecessary books piling up in your hidden books pane."

I deleted the PBB long ago but the files still remain. They are hidden because I don't want to see them but I'd like to permanantely delete them. 

I even found the physical files in:

Library > Application Support > Logos4 > Data > ResourceManager > Resources    

then deleted them but they come back upon reboot. 

HELP!

Files aren't removed unless you run a special command (I forget what it is... "removed unlicensed resources" or something like that). 

Were the personal books uploaded to the cloud?
