Smile a graphical display improvement

Hi

Congratulations and thanks for your excellent 0.5 new version of calibre.
The Linux install is also quicker and more informative.

I would like to propose you a small display improvement. It seems so obvious that I expected it at any other day...

When I use calibre, my screen ( I have a standard Toshiba 14 inches laptop screen) display a top row including only six out of eight items. Missing are the very useful items "Convert" and "Visualize" which need to be displayed in a special way (I have a French version and I apologize if the English names for these items are slightly different).

Of course, it's possible to use the menu. But if there is a graphic display, it should be more convenient.

I find this way of proceeding, how to say, cumbersome. Is it really impossible to squeeze all eight items in one single top row? The names could be shortened if need be.

There is an option in the configurationt hat allows you to make the icons smaller and remove the text. If you do that all of them will fit

I run pretty much all my software (that allows it) small icons, no text.
