Long in the past I hid a few of my personal books (because delete doesn't always work). Then I changed my mind and wanted to access them. I'd forgotten I'd hidden them, so just tried to rebuild them.

Actual result: After rebuilding, Logos tried to open the resource and told me it was hidden. I had the option to unhide, which I did. But then nothing (apparently) happened. If I tried top open the book again, I was told it was not in my library. I had to rebuild the book a second time in order to get it to appear.

Expected result:

  1. I would expect Logos to check whether a resource was hidden before compiling, not afterwards.
  2. I would expect that unhiding a personal book automatically recompiled the resource, just like unhiding a normal book automatically downloads the resource.

I can reproduce this and I'll create a case. It seems fair that we'd do something more when you click "Unhide".
