Is there some way to remove multiple resources at once, instead of one at a time?   I expected to see a "remove all" option in the library when I select a specific search, such as "local: author:carson", similar to the "download all" option that is available for downloading multiple resources at once

You can do this from the Library Information Pane on the desktop - but not in the mobile app

I thought so too... but it doesn't seem to work.  I unchecked the resources I wanted to remove from the library on my desktop, but they all still exist on the mobile device, even after rebooting the device.

So if I use only the mobile apps and have not bought the desktop apps, I will have no option to hide/remove those unwanted titles?

The desktop application is free so if you use a laptop/desktop you could use it even if just for this one purpose.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

M.J.'s suggestion is a good one but it does depend on which resources you are talking about.

Some resources are made available for free in the mobile apps but not on desktop so they wouldn't appear in the desktop library.

What titles are you trying to remove?

And please note this is only discussing whether the resources are downloaded to your device, not whether they show in your library.

What does "remove" mean in your scenario?  I have a test account with over 82,000 resources shown in the library on my iPad, but none of them are downloaded.  None of these resources can be "removed" since they are not downloaded.

However, if your intent is to only make visible certain resources on your mobile devices, please use the Hidden Resources feature on the Logos Desktop app.  Hide the resources you don't wish to appear and they won't, on both Desktop and mobile.

If I've misunderstood your intent please respond.!

Thank you, Graham and Kevin, for clarification. I actually want to hide the resources that are not downloaded but shown on my ipad apps. I tried to find the download link to the desktop apps. Is it available to both PC or Mac?

Can you give some examples?

As above it is possible they may be free mobile resources which you won't be able to control from the desktop

If you just want the ipad library to show downloaded resources you can enter the string "local:" (note the colon) in the Library filter box on the iPad

It is available - for both platforms - from https://www.logos.com/install
