Bug Description

Under Windows Vista/7 icons can have a size up to 256x256 pixels, so there should also be a preview for this size inside the Icon Dialog.

Feature already exists, only the GUI to select the icon sizes to view displayed in the dialog is missing:

You can manually edit the preferences file and choose the icon sizes: for 256, change the 'Show' value to 1 for the id 'size256'.

Bug #170892 in Inkscape: “128x128 size in icon preview”
(both 128x128 and 256x256 size are possible now, but not arbitrary sizes, and no GUI to choose)

Thanks for the extremely fast response! Then I'd say this issue should be about adding a UI to change this. Or should I create a new issue for that?

IMHO no new report is needed: it's a known missing feature and the same reason why bug #214769 has the status 'Confirmed' and not was closed even though the requested alternative icon size (22x22) is available via manually editing the preferences file. As noted in the comments there by the developer who implemented and continually enhanced the 'Icon Preview' dialog: «A general UI change to make it easier would be good.»

I'd rather link this report as duplicate to bug #214769 so that any progress of implementing a GUI for the configuration of the 'Icon Preview' dialog can be tracked in one place.
