How to modify the E-Book Viewer Interface?

Hi all,
I'm finding the UI of the Viewer quite cluttered and ugly (red rectangle in the below image). How can I modify the source code/preferences so that the options are aligned along the green rectangle?

Go to Advanced by clicking the Go Advance button. Under the message is a Manage Attachments button. Click that and you can upload your image.

Putting them all in a row is not going to make them less cluttered. It just puts them in a single undifferentiated row. Currently related actions are on rows.

Run calibre from source and modify its source code to do whatever you like.

The viewer has a toolbar that can be shown/hidden via Ctrl+F11.

It's dockable, just drag the handle to your preferred edge.
