If you've already downloaded the publication to your iPad or tablet, you'll also see the file size represented in the center of the magazine cover. To delete the file and remove the cover thumbnail from your library, tap the "X" and confirm your choice to "Remove issue from device". The publication file will be deleted, and the cover thumbnail will be removed from your library. Tap the "Done" button to exit Edit view.

Need to read a deleted issue again? Tap "Edit" in the top toolbar, then tap the "Restore" button. You'll see the cover thumbnails for each deleted publication. To restore the thumbnail to your library, tap the "+" button that appears in the upper right corner of each publication. Confirm your choice to "Restore issue on device". Tap the "Done" button to exit Edit view. You'll see that the issue has reappeared in your library. Simply tap the cover of the publication to download and read it again!
