Bring back viewer scrollbar's right click 'Top'-'Bottom' capability

I always heavily used and depended on the Book Viewer scrollbar's right click 'Top' and 'Bottom' feature to instantly go to the beginning and end of a book, and though I really enjoy the new viewer, I still miss having that ability.

I'm guessing that the new scrollbar can not do this, so as a monthly donor, I was wondering if perhaps the option of having a tiny subtle button could be placed at the top and bottom of the scrollbar to bring back this feature.

I made a composite screenshot showing exactly what I am envisioning.

Thank You for any consideration and thoughts.

You can go to the start and end of the book by pressing ctrl+home and ctrl+end respectively. As for a right click menu on the scrollbar, for tchnical reasons that is hard to do.

Top-Bottom buttons next to scrollbar, not within its coding

Thanks for the quick response Kovid.

Yes, as I said in my in the initial post, 'I imagine the new scrollbar isn't able to do the 'Top'-'Bottom' any longer. Perhaps what I should have clarified is that it would simply be nice to have two tiny buttons near the scrollbar that perform the Ctrl+Home, and Ctrl+End keyboard functions.

It could be another turn on-turn off option in the viewer preferences. The mouse is often the lazy person's way of avoiding keyboard shortcuts.

Thanks Again,
Frizzell

You can do that already using the mouse alone. Right click anywhere in the book contents to show the viewer control, click on Go to and click book start or book end

Oh and I managed to overcome the technical difficulty so the next release will have the scrollbar right click menu as well.

Wow! Thank You. Thank You. Thank You Kovid!
I'll contribute a little extra in my next monthly donation to show my appreciation.
