Yes, Hover your mouse over the personal book you want to delete in the personal book pane. Right click your mouse with your head slightly tilted to the left and select delete.

Jut kidding about your head being tilted partWink

Unfortunately this personal book is not listed in my personal books section.  Don't know why.  The only place i can see it is in my library.  if i right click there are no options to delete this resource.

Did you create the PB using the Personal Book tool?

Have you tried the "hiding" process with a restart? That should get rid of it.

Here is the wiki about hiding: http://wiki.logos.com/Hiding_Books

"Yes" what? If you tried deleting the personal book via the hide process and its still showing up, can you provide screen shots?

That is odd. I know this question may sound insulting but I do not intend it that way. Is it possible you were in that pane but the scroll bar was not positioned to see the book? I have done this myself on more than one occassion. I call it a Homer moment.

I was wondering if Troy was getting the "you don't have any personal books" message which appears before the list actually populates.

Don't think Troy was having a 'Homer moment' (though I guess it's possible). My Hermits volume is still lost in action. It's a PB but doesn't show in the PB panel for possible deletion.

I've been watching him hide out in my library for a while. Maybe like Troy he'll make a re-appearance in PBs.

That is odd. I have not had that happen yet. Has anyone from Logos ever provided any guidance or input about it?

Do you want it back? I don't know, but I am pretty sure that hermits are good at hiding out. Wink

I don't remember Logos responding to missing PBs. But since the hermits were safely in my library, I wasn't worried.

But the plot thickens. Now the hermits are missing from my library as well. Out of curiousity (spelled wrong but who knows), I checked my L4 resource folder and indeed, there's 1 too many PBs in there. Goodness they're good.

Actually I was wanting to eventually dispatch the hermits and I think they know it.

Just a few minutes later ....

They're back!! I typed 'hermit' in the library text area and no hermits volume. But then I typed 'user created' and there they were! I KNEW it. Sneaky little things. Three of them too. (Not like Herman's Hermits).

Mrs. Brown did have a Lovely Daughter. I don't think she used Logos though.

But can you dance to the audio of Logos' startup? Wink
