In order to save disk space and to have less irrelevant search results, I have already hidden a good number of resources and would like to hide even more.

However, I can imagine that while some resources are at this moment not relevant to me to could become relevant at some point in the future. However, finding a resource back in the "Hidden Resources" list under "Program Settings" is not easy (there is no way to search or filter in that list, author names are not shown, etc.).

Would it be possible to add a "show hidden resources" function to the "Library," so that one can choose the option to see even the hidden resources listed in the library?

I know FL is actively considering a solution which should address your concerns (and mine) at least in part. I don't know exactly how this will look, but I'm highly anticipating it!

Hello,

is there already a solution to make the hidden resources list more user friendly? At least there should be the possibility to export the list, so we can search it more efficiently.

Thx, Tom.

Thankful for Library having Device facet that shows what is downloaded (This device) and what is not on this device. Selecting resource(s) allows "Downloaded" to be clicked so can click "Remove from device" to reduce storage usage plus change section for search results from "Library (Downloaded)" to "Library (Cloud)" (search section can be collapsed so results are hidden from view)

FYI: for faster performance of refreshing collection cache with many commentary rule definitions, removed some commentary resources from my demonstration account. Already had program settings for Download New Resources set to No, which allows purchase of Free Books to increase "Library (Cloud)"

Work around is setting Download New Resources to No on your device(s) followed by unhiding so "new" resource(s) appears in Library on all your device(s), but does not download to any device.

I noticed the date on your post. I assume you have discovered that the Logos solution to this issue is to not hide the resources but to simply not download them to a specific device.

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