Hiding Books

If you have books you don’t want or no longer need they can be hidden which means they no longer appear in the Logos interface and are removed from the hard drive. Hidden books can be restored but note that you can only restore (unhide) one book at a time.

If you hide a book on one computer/installation, it will also be hidden on your other computers/installations, because the preference is sync’d. And they won’t be available to your mobile devices.


To hide multiple books:-

  1. Open your Library (see How to open Library)
  2. Select the books you want to hide
  3. Mac: press Option key and right-click
    OR
    Windows: press Ctrl key and right-click
  4. Select Hide these resources
  5. Restart Logos to complete the process

NOTE 1: From v6.3 you do not have to restart Logos unless the resources are being used in your layout.
NOTE 2: Whilst resources are removed from your library their entries remain in your Index. Use the command rebuild index to remove them, but it will take several hours to complete.


To hide one book at a time:-

  1. Click on the Tools menu and select Program Settings
  2. Scroll down to Hidden Resources and click on it
  3. Open your Library (see How to open Library)
  4. Locate the book
  5. Drag that book into the “Hidden Resources” section.
  6. Restart Logos —> except v6.3+ as noted above



Restoring Books



  1. Click on the Tools menu and select Program Settings
  2. Scroll down to Hidden Resources and click on it
  3. Select the resource then click the X to unhide it, or
    right click the resource and click Unhide
  4. Restart Logos —> except v6.3+
  5. Wait a few minutes for Logos to initiate a download.

NOTE 1: if the resource does not download within a reasonable time frame then use the command update resources.
