Now that chaley has provided a setting that shows a row of individual buttons in the status bar, as in previous versions, I suggest the Layout button be given a keyboard shortcut and revert to showing a list so that the items can be accessed from the keyboard without having remember several shortcuts.

I would I give it a shortcut of 'L', use arrow keys to navigate, and Enter to select - using one finger. I have to use two hands if I want to use a pointing device with any precision. I've tried many devices, most recently a $US700 Roller Mouse (on loan), it was good, but it interfered with my use of the keyboard too much.
--------------------

The Sort button shown in Grid view might also be useful in the List view, a column header is not always available to click because its under the book details panel, or it's off the edge of the window, or the column is represented within a composite icon, or its not even shown in the book list.

Clicking column headers can be a bit of hit and miss proposition for people with hand mobility or hand-eye coordination disabilities. Clicking a clearly labelled button would be much easier. Speaking for myself I would like to have the option of disabling column header clicking to sort, the only time I 'use' it is when I inadvertently click the header instead of a cell in the topmost book, or I want to drag the column to another position.
