Off should be next 8192, that's the logical progression if you look at what this option does.

Ah, I understand, although like most newbies I think they wouldn't get it, logically, to start with.

Before I resubmit, There are some other settings, which have a baring on this setting, for UI consistency.

Cycles Rendering:

Properties/Render Properties/Simplify

Viewport/Texture Limit
Render/Texture Limit

The selection here is 'No Limit', '128' -> '8192'

Can i Suggest.

  1. Preferences\Viewport\Textures

'Limit Size' -> 'Texture Limit'
Values are: '128 px' -> '8192 px', 'No Limit'

  1. Cycles\Properties\Render\Simplify

Viewport\Texture Limit, Values are '128 px' -> '8192 px', 'No Limit'
Render\Texture Limit, Values are: '128 px' -> '8192 px', 'No Limit'

I think renaming Off to No Limit is a good solution.

  1. Are you happy with the ordering 128 px -> 8192 px -> No Limit?
  1. In Preferences/Viewport/Textures are you happy for the text to change from 'Limit Size' -> 'Texture Limit'? I presume this will require a change to the manual?
