How do I display text in addition to icons in toolbar buttons?

For example, I find some of the icons in the Preview app to be quite unintuitive.

Is there a way to set this globally across all apps?


I have not yet found a way to set this globally across all apps.

For the Preview app, you can right-click on the toolbar button or control-click, and then select "Icon and text" to get this result:

  • I believe you are correct. This is an app preference and not something that you can globally set for all apps. – Steve Chambers Jul 24 '15 at 13:41
