Cloud Resources don't appear in collections - either in the library, or in the collections tool. There's no obvious reason for them not to - after all, all the metadata is there.

This is a problem, not least because it's natural to want to download all the resources in a particular collection.

It was an intentional choice, because initially collections could not be used with anything in the application without resources downloaded. We didn't think about the use case of downloading resources in a collection. We'll reconsider the situation.

I got used to the Collections representing what was On Device. It's easy enough to apply dynamic collection Rules to Library and download from there.

With part/full static resources, the Collection will only generate with downloaded resources e.g. with no Rule and/or no Plus/Minus resources. So how do you handle Plus and Minus resources, especially with a long list of Plus resources in the original?

Keep collections as they are.
