I have a ton of titles in my hidden resources section of the settings. I want to clear this out. How can I delete the list all at once?

Also, can I hide an entire collection as a collection?

Deleting documents from this list would mean to unhide them - i.e. get them back into the library. Is that what you want? Otherwise you will have to just ignore that this list is there (it won't hurt, it's just a reminder that you own the license o those books, even if they don't show in your library and are no longer consuming space on your HD)

Yes. You need to filter the library to only show your collection (which works via the in ...... selector to the right of the find box: select the collection there), then select all resources shown (select the first and scroll down, then with shift-click select the last) and then Ctrl-rightclick, last option: Hide these resources 

EDIT: Screenshot - I have a collection named "Perseus Latin resources", if I wanted to hide them all in one go - which would remove them from my library and HD, but make their titles appear in the hidden resources list you asked about - see http://wiki.logos.com/Hiding_Books

Awesome, this is very helpful.

Yes, I want to actually delete the titles in my current hidden folder so that they no longer show up and I have an empty hidden resources folder with them not being unhidden

This is currently not an option - and I don't really get the rationale. If you never want to use a certain resource or bundle in total, you can give back the license to Faithlife (some users did this with some of the Perseus bundles, or the Richmond Times), otherwise, such as in cases where you want to use part of a bundle and part not, or don't want to get rid of the license, you hide them. The list in Logos is your way to "get them back" one day. Since hidden resources are deleted from your HD, they won't disturb - and you don't need to look at that list.

How do I give the license back? Yes, this is due precisely to my hidden Persius titles
