HEX and Unicode
« on: September 28, 2015, 10:58:24 pm »
"LineHex" is disabled for Unicode files, but it shouldn't be.


Bug:
Load Unicode file.
Switch to Hex view
Switch to Line hex (this menu is enabled when in Hex view).
Switch to plain text view again.


Result: The file is displayed double-spaced - it is being interpreted as 8-bit encoding.

Line hex mode is much more limited than hex mode but I think it can support utf-8 files (can't support utf-16 etc. for sure).

We will look into to these problems. Thanks

Line hex mode will support utf-8 files for the next beta. Thanks for noticing
