I would like to unhide several hundred resource.  The wiki says it's one at a time from the Program Settings.  Is that still the case?

As far as I know it is.

My limited understanding of how this works is that you delete the resource from the "hidden books" list and the book redownloads and indexes upon restart. Right? I would assume that you could delete multiple resources from the list and that they would download upon restart... but you have to delete the resources from the list "one at a time." Is that what you mean?

Yes, that is how I am reading the wiki ... also a quick test seems to confirm that I cannot select and unhide more than one per mouse click ...

bummer ... this is going to take awhile  Sad

Thanks for the reply.

However, they may not need indexing! If you rebuilt your index after they were hidden they will require indexing.

A quick update ...

I underestimated what I had done previously.  I hid the entire Early American Library Collection, nearly 5,000 resources.  Tongue Tied

I have know idea what I was thinking at the time.

Anyway, I sent an e-mail to Tech Support to see if there is any relief.  In the meantime, I've start clicking "unhide" on the very, very long list of resources.  (If I do 100 a day I'm bee finished in a couple of months.)

No reply, from Tech Support but I will keep everyone informed.
