Eliminate Duplicate Titles in My Library


When you open My Library, you may notice that many books are listed multiple times.

Titles 2, 3, 4 and 6 in this screenshot are all the same book. Why this duplication? Many books include multiple titles to allow for different ways of finding the book (e.g., AV, authorized, king james, kjv, etc).

Admittedly, with all these duplicate and sometimes triplicate titles it can be hard to find what you are looking for...and confusing to know when items with similar titles really are different books. The Cambridge Paragraph Bible of the Authorized English Version really is a different version of the KJV... not the same file at all! 


To help reduce this confusion, we give you the option to display only the primary title of each book in My Library. Here's how to set your preference:

  1. Go to Tools | Options | General.
  2. On the left side of the Options window, click the Interface tab.
  3. Check the option "Use Only Primary Resource Titles in My Library" and click OK

Now go back to My Library and you will only see one title for each book. You can still type KJV in the find box and the King James Version will appear in the list.
