Go to a command prompt window and CD to a different folder than the files opened in step 2. Call this FOLDERB. 4. Run "hxd FILENAME" 5. HxD will sh...

Fixed: HxD: App can focus thrash when quitting

How is this functionality accessed? In the Open File Dialog, I tried the following and none worked. All told me that it was an invalid path. file.ext:$DATA c:\fullpath\file.ext:$DATA "c:\fullpath\file.ext":$DATA Any ideas? FYI, the top one I tried should be equivalent to just file.ext since $DATA is...

Done: HxD: Allow editing of NTFS file stream

It would be nice to edit/view an NTFS alternate stream on files and folders. In case you didn't know, these streams are accessible with the following syntax:

c:\dir:streamname
c:\dir\file.ext:streamname

I must have moved the caret around earlier. I didn't think I had. It behaves as you described.

Could this be moved to a feature request? It would be nice if you could set an option to determine how PageUp/PageDown behave.

Won't Do: HxD: PageUp and PageDown behavior change option

Seek to the middle of the file with the scrollbar. The files I'm looking at are bigger than 0x5000 bytes in size (usually >=128MB). Press either Page Up or Page Down. HxD scrolls up to a random location (appears to go within the first 0x5000 bytes). Successive PageUp or PageDown presses work as expe...

Fixed: HxD: Minor typo when using Replace (All)

No matter what I search for or replace it with, if I use replace or replace all, the Information dialog that pops up afterwards always says 'Replaced XXX occurances of "s"'.

XXX varies, but "s" is always "s" no matter what.

Fixed: HxD: Minor typo in saving dialog

When saving a disk's data to an image or an image back to a disk there is a small typo in the saving dialog. Instead of saying "Saving..." this dialog is titled "SSaving...". This is rather minor but worth noting. I have a screenshot if you'd like to see which saving dialog I'm referring to since th...

Replies: 26

If I highlight [4B 23 10 22] I would expect something like

BE: 1260589090
LE: 571482955

I did a DWORD above, but it shouldn't matter what size chunk i highlight -- maybe max out at 8 bytes.

These would be handy to have in the status bar with options to pick which one or both to show.

Done: HxD: show values for highlighted data

It would be nice if HxD would show the values of highlighted data with the option of showing as little-endian, big-endian, or both.

Values should be shown in either decimal or binary. The former to make data validation easier, and the latter to help with validating flag fields.

Done: HxD: confusion when opening file that's already open

If you're not paying attention when you open a file and you already have it open, HxD complains that it cannot open the already open file because another process (HxD itself) has the handle. Perhaps HxD should first check if the file's already open and just make that tab the current one instead of t...

Instead of having just "HxD" in the right click context menu, add an additional option and label them as follows: 1. Edit with HxD 2. View with HxD In HxD itself, include options of which of those 2 to show (1 or both) and which is the default for unassociated files and top-most under the default ac...

Fixed: HxD: files opened "read only" require write

If you open a file with the "read only" checkbox checked in the open file dialog, my application, which uses GENERIC_READ access and FILE_SHARE_READ sharing, cannot get a handle to the same file. If in my application I open the file with FILE_SHARE_READ|FILE_SHARE_WRITE I can get a handle. I would e...
