Re: Support High-DPI GDI Rendering

It needs a new set of icons, for which I need a new license.

Delphi's VCL has several bugs for high DPI, new versions are 2000€ (Delphi Professional is the cheapest edition supporting the features that HxD needs).
It's more than a simple fix ;)

Re: Text column support for UTF-8, UTF-16 and other multi-byte text encodings (variable width encodings)

Advantage of solving UTF-8 first When all the issues are solved for UTF-8, from text output to the screen, to navigation, editing, searching/replacing and printing, most of the solutions will be applicable to other encodings. This is because many problems will be solved on the code point level, not...

Re: Text column support for UTF-8, UTF-16 and other multi-byte text encodings (variable width encodings)

Rendering combining characters separately As can be seen from the previous explanations, text rendering is quite complex, and the association between code points and rendered output is not visually obvious. In hex editors this association is often desired, since a hex editor is seen as a sort of ta...

Re: Text column support for UTF-8, UTF-16 and other multi-byte text encodings (variable width encodings)

Zalgo text exposes glyph layout rendering bugs under Windows Under Windows, no matter if using GDI's TextOut(), Uniscribe, or DirectWrite, there will be significant glyph layout bugs for Zalgo text, when using certain fonts. Notably, the commonly used fixed-pitch font Consolas triggers those bugs. ...

Re: Import Hex File

I replied to you by mail, to keep a log of what is to be done I'll paste it here as well: Thanks for the example file. I could reproduce the error and the reason is due to the large "empty" leading portion that needs to be inserted. As you correctly noticed, HxD currently fills it with zeros. I have...

If you could provide me with an example file, that would help a lot in debugging. You can send it to my email given here if you prefer for it to remain private: https://mh-nexus.de/en/contact.php

Re: plug-in architecture

You are probably aware of the plugin architecture that exists so far? https://github.com/maelh/hxd-plugin-framework I am working on a data inspector extension right now, so that you can define structures using a simple language, and it will display the decoded data in a kind of tree-like view. Once ...

Re: Site icon

Thanks for notifying me.
The same favicon is now used for all the sub-domains.
To make it appear you need to make a full refresh, e.g., Ctrl+F5 in Firefox.

(The design will need an update some time ;)
