I suggest you ...

An easier way to hide and unhide multiple resources rather than one at a time.

Right now you have to click and drag each individual resource you want hidden into the hidden resources area. And if you want to go back and unhide them you have to do that one at a time to. It would be nice if you could ctrl-click or shift-click multiple books in your library then drag them all at once into the hidden resources file. Or maybe on the right side of the library after you select multiple books, where you can already tag or rate them all at the same time, add a button where you can hide these resources.

You can hide multiple resources by selecting them in the Library, right click while holding down Ctrl (on Windows) or Option (on Mac), then choose “Hide these resources”.

I’m closing this suggestion to free up votes; we do not currently plan to implement an “unhide multiple resources” feature. If you think this is important, please create a new suggestion. (But first, it may be helpful for us to know why frequently hiding and unhiding batches of resources is necessary. Hiding is intended to get rid of resources you never want to see again, not to temporarily remove resources. Is there some “deeper” library management function you’re trying to accomplish, and hiding is the only way to do it right now?)

    I use hide/unhide as a workaround for having low space on my computer. Once you implement a selective download or upgrade the web app to be full featured, this won't be needed anymore.

    Fran, it's best to post requests for help on our Community Forums: https://community.logos.com/forums/124.aspx

    Assuming you're talking about the Home Page, there are multiple ways to configure it better to your liking. On the home page itself, click the gear icon in the top right to hide sections that you don't want. Or, if you really don't want to see the home page at all, you can turn it off at startup in Program Settings.

    Bradley, don't know if you are still the Admin on this.
    I hide the stuff you bloat my front page with.
    How come you guys put things on my front page without asking if I want these things? This is one of the biggest reasons I despise opening my Logos & rarely use it.

    Though other Bible software isn't as useful, at least they don't rearrange my opening page, so I use them instead of Logos.

    Thanks Bradley, using Option (ALT) on the Mac worked great for me to hide 1000s of resources at once.

    Is Really import hide and hnhide multiple resources at time. For example i download the perseus collection (1114 books) and now is very dfficult hide one by one. For example is necesarry hide entire collection at one.

    Hiding a collection might be an easier way to implement it on the front end, then you can setup a static or dynamic collection and hide things on the fly. The back end is a different story.

    In addition to dragging, "Hide" as an option on the right-click menu in the library?

  • Vinnie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This would be great. I'm currently hiding the 1000+ Perseus resources I regrettably signed up for. This tedium makes it hard to recommend Logos to others.

  • Brian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is a much much needed improvement. There are so many resources that I do not use/will never use and would like to be able to hide them all at once.

  • John Duffy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    As well as doing this for hidden resources, it would be great to do it when adding books to a collection. When adding a lot of books to a collection, they all have to be added manually. (Sometimes dynamic collections aren't suitable and manually created ones are needed.)

    And to add this nice feature to the Library in addition to (or instead of) Program Settings. I understand why it is currently in Program Settings.
