Recently, I received an e-mail from a seasoned Logos user who presented the following scenario:
I’ve been with Logos for many years and amassed numerous resources. As I surveyed my Library I realized some of these resources I may not use. Is there a way to remove them from my Library?
For various reasons you may find yourself in a similar situation. For example, perhaps you don’t read Latin, yet you discover you have Latin resources.
So the answer is yes and here’s how:
- Drag the Library (book) icon to the center of the desktop to open your electronic bookshelf in its own panel that fills the screen
- Click the View icon in the upper right of the Library (A)
- Select Details view which displays your resources in a spreadsheet that’s easy to navigate (B)
- Use a Rule in the Find box (C) and column headers (D) to locate the resource(s) you wish to remove
- Select multiple resources by holding down the Ctrl key on a PC and Command key on a Mac and then clicking a resource (do not, however, click the title which opens the resource) (E)
- Hold down the:
- Ctrl key on a PC
- Option key on a Mac
- Right click (while holding down the above key) on a resource or multiple selected resources (F)
- Select Hide this resource or Hide these resources for multiple selected resources (G)
Please note several things:
- The removed resources (H) are placed in the Hidden Resources section at the bottom of Program Settings found on the Tools menu (I)
- Hidden resources are immediately removed from your Library.
- You can Unhide a resource using the Hidden Resources section in Program Settings to once again have it appear in the Library (J)
