I really like using Texmaker in mac OS but the way I have my work area set up I cannot easily access the button to open the external viewer from the embedded viewer window (I like it squished up to the side). In order to click the button, I have to press the >> button to bring up the option. Is there any way I can change the ordering of the embedded viewer buttons or hide some of them?

I like using the embedded viewer as my default, so I don't want to change anything about my setup, other than where that external viewer button is.

    Check out Texstudio, it is very similar to Texmaker but you can customize the buttons in the menu bar – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Aug 21 '14 at 17:02

Well for your screenshot it seems to be the last version with QT5 that has not the menu above and that's disgusting, at least for me. But if I am wrong, you should see above, in the finder bar I think, the menu and if you click above Options choose the first option: Configure Texmaker it opens a new window.

Window configuration from TeXmaker

Below in the right side of the screen is the section Pdf viewer where you can see the options, please check the Embed one. Close the window and perhaps you'll need to restart the program.

As you can see I'm using gnu/linux (Ubuntu actually) but it should fix it.
