I have several personal books that I would like to delete out my library. But Logos won't let me do that. I'm wondering why not and how I can get it to let me do that.?

See if this works:

Go to the tools menu and select personal books:

Then right click on the book you want to delete:

Click delete:

That should take care of it. Also, restart Logos to make sure everything is indexed properly.

I have noticed this with a couple of my PBB, I haven't gone back to try it again lately though.

I have tried that Jacob. The delete word is grayed out and won't let me select it

If not I think it would be better to call Logos Tech.

Blessings in Christ.

Graham,

I find them in the library, but I see no way to hide them. Sad

Did you "upload" the book or "build" the PB? If you uploaded then the delete button is greyed out and you can only now hide it to remove it.

To hide books have you followed these steps? https://wiki.logos.com/Hiding_Books

You hide books using the "hidden book" feature: https://wiki.logos.com/Hiding_Books  EDIT: I see that there is a link right above mine that Stephen provided. The forums are broken for me right now so I can't make the link active (normally you add a space afterwards... but I can only add plain text right now).

Seems to me that they should rethink that.

In my opinion it is a real flaw in the program that deleting books is not more intuitive.  Simplify!  Simplify!  Come on Logos, let's use common sense.  It should be simple to delete a book from the program on your device, while still maintaining the right to add it back if desired.  One of the few things that bugs me about Logos is that the simplest things are often least intuitive.

Note, I said that this is my opinion.  It may not be anyone else's opinion, but it is mine.
