Is there a way to show a 1:1 scale preview/secondary view?
When you're zoomed in editing something very small (like an icon), it's hard to tell what it looks like at 1:1. Is there any way to avoid having to constantly zoom from 1:1 to your editing zoom level?

We can create a new view of our canvas with View > New View. On any of views the zoom factor can be adapted to convenient values for easy switching between different zoom levels.
When in multi-windowed mode these views can also be displayed next to each other:
