Hello

I re-installed Logos 8 a few days ago and, at that time, elected to only download essential books / resources. Now I would like to download ALL my resources. How can I do this? Do I need to uninstall and then re-install the programme?

Thank you in anticpation.

No, you merely need to go to the library panel, select all your resources, and click on download in the Information Panel. Don't worry about just selecting resources that are no downloaded. The System takes care of it just fine.

And welcome to the forums - if you are new to Logos, come back often with your questions 

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

Hello

Where exactly is the library panel? How do I select all my resources? How can I check that all of my resources have been successfully downloaded?

Thank you.

George Ruddell:
Where exactly is the library panel?

On Mac, open the Library using command-L

The correct term is "Library Sidebar." To open it, click on the "hamburger menu" (Three horizontal lines icon, upper left hand corner).

In the sidebar, open the "devices" carrot (triangle). Select the "not on this device" for your computer. On Mac, to download all, select the first resource, press "shift" and then select the last resource. This keyboard combo selects ALL the resources. You will then click on "download." If you don't see the "download" button, then click on the "info" icon (circle "I").

Once they have all downloaded and indexed, restart your computer. You can then repeat the steps above to see if there are any resources "not on this device."

Even easier, type Command-A

Hello Everyone

Thank you very much for your help.

How do I select all "not on this device" books once I open the Devices "carrot?" I am using a PC, not a Mac.

Any further guidance would be appreciated.

Ctrl-A

Many Ctrl keyboard shortcuts on Windows use Command on Mac. Historically, Command-Z, X, C, V (for Undo, Cut, Copy, Paste) were implemented first on Mac with Windows cloning those keyboard shortcuts as Ctrl-Z, X, C, V later (Mac keyboard arrangement is easier to use for these shortcuts because Command is located under Z, X, C, V keys while Windows keyboards have Ctrl displaced to the left)).

Not completely sure, but Control-A should select all.

Just click "Not on this Device"and the library display should show all the resources stored in the cloud and none of those on your computer.

You can try Control-A. If that does not work, you can then select all of them by the shift-click method described by JT.
