show/hide controls in viewer

Hello

As of Release: 0.9.15 [18 Jan, 2013] there's a new feature to show/hide controls in viewer window. Problem is I can't find where it is.
Quote:
E-book viewer: Add an option to hide the toolbars in the viewer window (Preferences->Miscellaneous->Show controls in the viewr preferences). You can unhide them by right clicking in the viewer window.
Under Preferences>Miscellaneous I only see irrelevant options.
I'm on Win7 with Calibre portable just updated to this version.

Thanks.

Yes, Kovid referred you to the preferences for the ebook viewer not for calibre's main program, See attached. View a book then click on the preferences icon for the viewer.

Did you click the 'Gears' Icon in the E-Book Viewer, then look on the 'General' TAB

Or you could simply right-click inside the book viewing area: Show/Hide controls

BTW This seems the only way to Get the controls BACK

I think that's the problem, I don't have a gear icon.
This is how books are appearing and what I see in right click menu:


Another thing, if I right click somewhere near the frame border I get this menu and which ever I click on it's only hiding top bar.

OK, I went to the Preferences (It was there), and removed the Tick.

NOW it is available as a right-click

It is only available in the right click menu when the controls are hidden.

@aa: Find and delete the file viewer.json on your computer, that will restore the toolbars.
