I need to know how to completely remove, or hide, books from my iPhone/iPad library.  I have too many foreign language books I cannot even read that keep showing up in my Bible searches.  I only have four Bibles I typically use when comparing verses and do not want my whole library showing up in the search.  Thank you, Joseph

You can do it only through desktop and then it will hide on iPhone

I am not sure if this is true. I thought this was the case, but my "hidden resources" still show up. It may be an area that hasn't migrated to the new sync v2, but I have not asked the developers that yet.

I've tried hiding it on my desktop, but the resources still show up on my mobile devices.  Not sure if it's a syncing with their servers issue or what it might be.

I can verify that this doesn't work.

I think I found where some of the books are from on my iPad/iPhone.  I accessed that free biblia.com website and it added some extra books.  Is there a way to get rid of the extra books on this site, or do I need to deactivate that account all together?

Biblia.com does not "create an account," it uses the one you already have. Logos does provide users of both biblia.com & the mobile app with some free resources. There is no way to remove these from your library. NOTE: the free books are only viewable from either the mobile app and/or biblia.com. You can't view them in L4 unless you own the resource.

Does anybody know how to close biblia.com in order to remove the extra resources from my iPhone/iPad?

Sorry Joseph if I did not make myself clear. Both the mobile app & biblia.com come with some free resources. There are not any licenses added to you account, and you cannot remove the resources from either biblia.com or the mobile app.

No problem.  Do you know if Logos is working on a way to remove the extra books?  They keep showing up in my searches along with the books of the apocrypha.

 

Thank you for your help!

I don't believe they have any intentions of removing them. They are there so that anyone can have access to some resources. Perhaps you can give an example of a search you are doing and we might be able to assist you further.

What resources do you own, by the way? Do you just have individual purchases, or do you own a base package?

I have the Leader's Library for Mac.  It's mainly when I am searching for a verse on the home screen of my iPad or iPhone it has all the apocrypha books available and it's kinda confusing.  Also, when I do a search for a word or a verse, I get search results from Bibles of languages I do not know or understand.  Thanks for your help.

There has been many discussions about that, but at this point it looks like that will stay. Logos caters to a diverse group which includes those who use the apocryphal books.

The Leader's Library has some Original Language resources, but not many. Out of curiosity, did you order the Perseus collection? If so, did you order the whole thing or just parts? Which ones?

I don't have my iPad handy right now, but I am guessing that you could do a search using filter syntax to weed out the greek. Perhaps someone will know the syntax off the top of their head before I get a chance to look it up. [You might check the WIKI. I would do it, but its getting late Smile]

Curious about verse and word searches ?

One option for resources that are not useful is hiding them in Logos 4; wiki has => Hiding Books

Concur with Alabama24 that archiving better describes what hiding resources does.

Also wonder if have signed into Biblia.com and Logos app with your Logos.com account ? (may affect resource list in library)

If learn some Greek, the phrase "It's Greek to me." takes on new meaning, especially for parts of the Greek New Testament.

Keep Smiling Smile

Nicky - if you are referring to the "remove" button as shown in the following screen shot, "remove" means to "delete the resource from offline viewing." The book is still available in the library while online.

ok. I just didn't want to confuse anyone. The OP was about getting rid of books completely (even online).

I vote that Logos really needs to give mobile users the option to display only specifically desired books in library. It is a thorn in my side to have to scroll through all of them to find what I am looking for. The library window would fit all 4 or 5 books I desire without scrolling otherwise
