Looks nice! But something I would change is the arrows for switching
preview pages. Having to click 123 times in a row a button because I
want to preview/select page 124 would be very frustrating.

Perhaps the right widget to use there is a scrollbar? (it has the two
buttons, it has page advance, and it has dragging to getting close to
the desired value quickly)
