Hi
I work with textured meshes recently a lot, and I would love to have 'reload texture' button under material texture option.
Thanks

What is the 'reload texture' for? In the Materials window, there is a button 'Change' which let you change the texture. Also, Rendering > Toggle Texture Visible.

Sorry for not being clear.
This button would just refresh texture to it's newest version.
Right now we can do 'change button' to refresh it, but it opens browser and we need to search for texture - it is jut not convenient 3 clicks get job done. Also texture is updated just on one 'active' mesh, and not on other objects that are using this texture, but I guess it would require material instances and a lot of coding...
So 'refresh(reload) texture' would be enough, cos I could just select object - > hit refresh texture - >then repeat for next object that uses this texture.
Again not a big change just from 3 clicks to 1 click, but if we do this many times it saves a time. And what I love about nVil is that we can make most of operations on mesh just with 1 click. Going to other modeling software after using nVil makes me cry.
