Re: drag and drop not working

If you run HxD as administrator (actually any program that is run with admin privileges) you cannot drag and drop any files. Let me know if running HxD as normal user fixes it. (Another possibility would be that you maybe set some compatibility options for Windows 10/HxD, that somehow disable drag a...

Re: cannot follow instruction cause..

6. Decode by faad.exe Press R key with Windows key to open the dialog. Type “cmd” and press OK button to open the Command Prompt. Thanks, the complete steps helped to give context. Point 6 is not related to HxD at all. You should press the Windows key (the one with the flag) and at the same time th...

Re: cannot follow instruction cause..

Do you have a link to the original instructions?
That would help a lot.

UI change for search window: quick encoding selection

In the search/replace window, make different encodings accessible at the same time with few clicks.

Often useful: Ansi/Windows-1252 and UTF-16, maybe UTF-8.

A listbox with checkboxes could be useful, to quickly select several encodings, instead of a combobox, like now.

Re: Option to Display Decoded Text First or Hide Hex Column

Hi,

There is an option under the menu "View|Visible colums" to only show the text column.

Re: Background Colors

So, if in HxD you could color parts of the file that you know they contain certain things, you'd know immediately what they are. This would work like a label for parts of the file. Alternatively, you could grey out parts of the file, protecting them at the same time from editing. This would be part...

Re: Data Visualizer

There are some interesting visualizaton methods I have seen over time, including 3D visualizations that allow to find patterns (which might be a bit out of the scope of HxD, but I will add links in here later, nonetheless, for reference). Decoding pictures seems reasonable and a cool feature to add,...

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

Self-synchronizing properties of UTF-8 (and lack of it in UTF-16) UTF-8 is self-synchronizing at byte-level. UTF-16 is not self-synchronizing at byte-level, but at code-unit-level (i.e., UInt16 units). Here is a simple example of this issue for UTF-16LE (assuming a file made of 4 bytes, given in he...

Re: "Abstract Error" when pressing "Next Array Item" with custom data type selected in the Data Inspector

I replied to you about the plugin and some implementation issues by mail.

Regarding your bug report, indeed there is an error in HxD, I am investigating it right now.

Re: Some ideas for user experience improving view settings

Thanks for your mockups and suggestions :) Regarding the zero-byte ghosting I am not sure if I would implement it. The plan currently is to add support for structure views and UTF-8 text display, the latter of which would require redoing the drawing code quite a bit. Splitting up based on values wou...

There is no such option yet, I am afraid, but there is a feature request for a more extended search already.

Re: Default column view

There is no such feature currently and there are many features waiting to be implemented.

So unless something needs to be clarified, there is usually no reason to comment on a FR, since it shows when a post is public (i.e., when it was submitted successfully :)).

Re: Error when writing to disk end

However HxD version 1.7.7.0 does not have any problems writing at the end of these disks. In that case it is probably an issue with unmounting logical drives on the physical disk. A range problem is unlikely, since HxD works with 64 bit integers, and it works under 1.7.7.0. Did it mention that unmo...
