Is it possible at this moment to create a PBB using the Logos COM API (Adding a new PBB to the PBB-list, set the author, name, etc properties, add a Word-document, and build the PBB)?

No, this is not supported. The full list of supported features is here: http://wiki.logos.com/Logos_4_COM_API

Are there any plans for adding this to the API? I would like to make a little application that I can distribute to my friends, that will add some PBB's to their library automatically. It would save me a lot of explaining on how to add a PBB :)

I don't think Logos is concentrating much on enhancing the API. Maybe you can do without it by using some other way of automating, such as PowerShell.

Automation without an API can be done, but is tricky (you have to think about all the errors that can occur, and handle them in a proper way), and usally takes much more time to program.

Maybe when I've a lot of spare time I'll give it a try. I would like to create a program that can download PBBs (.docx files + descriptive .txt file) from repositories (FTP servers, editable list, so users can setup their own repositories) and add it to Logos as a PBB.

I would want to make the app really simple. The user starts the application, selects in a big list all the titles he/she wants to add, and the program downloads the files from the repositories and add them to Logos as a PBB.

If someone here has tried to automate adding PBB's, I really would like to here about your results.
