I've already fixed the menus and they're fine now. The bug is gone. And in
Trusty, Evince has less buttons. We tested before other solutions and
Evince is not so resource-hungry, it respects image standards (colour
profiles, icc resampling, anti-aliasing, etc) more than any other solution
that, unfortunately, use "strange" UI solutions (FLTK, non-GTK, etc).
