I've noticed that some titles available for iOS can be viewed but not downloaded for reading offline. Here is one example:

 

Notice that the Available Offline option is completely grayed out. Is this normal or a bug? Are some titles not available for offline viewing? I don't understand why the Westcott Hort GNT would not be available since it is clearly in the public domain.

You need a license for the resource to download it. We have two versions of the Westcott Hort GNT -- one with morphology and one without. We make the version without morphology available to everyone for free, but don't give everyone a license. Our Original Languages, Scholar's Library and Portfolio base packages all include a license for the version with morphology. You should be able to download the version with morphology, which you have a license for.

Okay, I found the other one with morphology and downloaded it. Thanks.

I guess I didn't realize that I had access to some resources on the iPad that I don't have licenses for. Are there a lot of resources like this that can't be downloaded?

By the way, Dave, I enjoyed the podcast with your interview.

There are only a few resources that are available for free on the iPhone but not part of most base packages.

I have had a similar problem with The Fullfilled Family by John MacArthur.  I can read it, but when I try to download it, I get the message "Offline Resource - Unable to download resource LLS:40.70.1.
