I am struggling to get my books to download automatically and the old method "update now" does not work. The only way to do it is to scroll slowly through my library looking for the download icon (at 8000+ resources it takes VERY long) or download books one at a time as I search! Not the best experience!

I wish there was a way to completely switch off the "don't download books" feature. I WANT my resources on my harddrive. I DON'T want them in the cloud. Doesn't work well in SA where we don't always have good internet OR on a plane where normally one has no internet for 12 hours at a time. 

1) is there a way to ALWAYS force Logos to download ALL books?

2) If not, what would it take for Logos to add that feature? I would buy that pre-pub in a second!

P.S Yes I did configure the App in settings to auto-download. ALL the settings are set to YES!

There is a much faster way! Use the Library filter...scroll down to the Devices section and click on the "Not on this Device" filter. That will show all the resources not downloaded. Then use CTRL-A or CMD-A to select all of them. Then click download.

As far as the resources not automatically downloading, I am not sure. It works for me. Here are my settings:

When you install Logos 8 for the first time, you have to select "Everything" else you will get a "Recommended" subset on your hard drive. As you appear to have the latter, then the suggestion above will get you the rest.
