#1510 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Download button confused with search history drop-down control

Description

(Tested on Get IA Books version 3 in Trisquel 3.0 with Sugar 86.2)

The down-arrow icon looks like the drop-down icon for search history in other systems, so I clicked it and found I was downloading a book instead.

I suggest that the download icon be moved to the right side of the format selector with a clear gap between the selector and the download button (so it is not confused with the format selector down-arrow).

A rapidly appearing hover palette with a "Download" description, or using another, more explicit icon, including perhaps the elements of the Activity icon are some other alternatives to avoid the potential confusion.

I have added a gap in between the button/search field (http://dev.laptop.org/~sayamindu/get_books.ogv)

However, it may also be possible to put a button marked "download this book" in the text widget. I'll take a look at how easily doable that is.
