Size of icons/buttons

Okay, I feel like an idiot, but... I just updated to 0.7.9, and suddenly the buttons (Add Books, Edit Metadata) are all huge again, and for the life of me I cannot find where I select the size. I could have sworn it was in Preferences/Interface, but I must be blind or stupid, because I just don't see it there. What am I missing? Can someone help?


I really can't stand them being this large - especially these new ones, which, I hate to say, I find incredibly...not so much ugly individually as unattractive/inconsistent as a group, and also confusing (e.g., the recycling symbol for Remove Books, and the search magnifying glass symbol for View), and I prefer to keep them as small as possible so I can just focus on the text beneath them. I just can't figure out how!

You can't reduce their size anymore. The reason is that the location bar and toolbar have been combined into one.

And incidentally, the old icons also had a magnifying glass for view.

Oh and I forgot to mention that controlling the toolbar size will be restored in the next release (I just didn't have time to re-implement it for 0.7.9)

At least I wasn't missing something - and I'm glad to hear that it will be restored; I like having that flexibility. Thanks for letting me know.

I decided to post my comments about the look of the icons in the thread devoted to that issue, though it's an older one, rather than getting off-topic here!

I agree. I'm all for being able to reduce the size of the icons. Screen real-estate is at a primium on my laptop!
