Caliber library cover view?

I can't figure out how to configure Calibre to show the cover view browser under the library list like in the tutorial. I read that it will now appear to the side on my screen. It does, but only a selected cover, not the iPad type browser. I can show it in a separate frame, but not in the main page. Any insight is appreciated.
BTW Calibre ver. 0.7.7
Cheers,
kev

First in Preferences - Interface make sure Show cover browser in separate window is unchecked and quit (cntl-Q) and restart calibre if needed. Then if you do not see the cover browser click the arrow icon in the lower right area next to Jobs. If you still don't see it find the yellow horizontal line, grab it and pull the window down.

OK, thanks! Duh!!!!! Missed that!!
Any way to change screen location? It appears above the list. Thought it was going to be on right with a wide screen.
Thanks,

Looks like wide view is in the center, you want it on the right switch to narrow view.

Preferences - interface - narrow view

OK, thanks. I read wide/narrow view as the screen, not the browser.

Thanks,

If you have a narrow screen, you probably want the browser on the bottom.

See? You are correct

Not that it matters but the browser is no longer on the bottom it is smack dab in the center above the book list.

I have a wide screen and I didn't much care for it on the bottom but I do like it in the new center position. It also looks good on the right hand side.

Both positions are a great improvement.
