Book Viewer Toolbar Icon Size

Calibre's E-book Viewer has had such useful mods recently that it is now my primary viewer. In calibre's main settings under Look and Feel there is an option to set the icon size on the toolbar but this does not seem to carry through to E-book Viewer, so is there anywhere in the viewer to change this setting? There is an icon which matches the Look and Feel icon but this switches on reference mode.

No, there's no way to set that. Why do you want to change it?

Purely cosmetic. I'd like to use small icons as I do in the library.

Me too...

I'd like to change the icon size in ebook-viewer as well.. And the reason is not only cosmetic but because since I have made the ebook-viewer window default to precisely the size of my 6" e-reader, I did not at first realize that some icons were hidden off-screen and only accessible if I clicked a rather unobtrusive ">>" sign at the far-right of my toolbar. And now even though I have found how I can access those icons -- including the all-important "Preferences" dialog, it's rather frustrating to go through all the clicking when you think that with smaller icons, everything would be visible and readily accessible.

I haven't tried, but I guess I could just work around this by resizing the icons using the Gimp or other and that would do the trick as long as I stick them in the right place.. and then probably have them blown away every time I upgrade..?

Isn't there a more user-friendly solution..?

More generally, is there a "theme-ing" solution of sorts that would make it possible to replace all the calibre icons by something else.. In my case more android-like, such as is the current fashion in gnome-gtk applications..?

I don't know if the viewer uses the same icon rules?

Thanks.. I resized all the standard icons to 50% of their original size... copying the output to ~/.config/calibre/resources/images... I bounced calibre but this didn't make any difference either on the calibre main toolbar or the viewer's. Apparently the code does load the custom icons but it just scales them up to the same display size as the standard ones.

No big deal..

Until you mentioned the icons going off of the screen I wouldn't have thought it possible when mimicking a 6 inch reader. Then I realized you must have your icons across the top. If you drag the icon bar to the left side of the book you won't run into icons disappearing from the viewer. Or if you drag the icons below or above the search bar it may or may not work for you.
