    Example file contents:

    When we open a file in Text (UTF-8) mode, if we want to find “hi123”,
    Switch to Wrap by window, and type “hi123” to search,
    The result is “12 matches are found in 1 lines”, it will not impact by the Wraps.

    But when we open a file in Binary (Hexadecimal View) mode, if we want to find “hi123”,
    Use “68 69 31 32 33” to search,
    The result bacame “6 matches are found in 6 lines”, it missed 6 matches.

    User need to type “68 69 31 \n32 33”, “68 69 (%20%20)31 32 33″…and more terms to search the rest many possible results.
    Therefore, could you please advise how to Find in Binary (Hexadecimal View) easily ?
    Suggest as Text mode did, no impact by the Space and Newline character ?

    Hi, someone has a solution already?


    EmEditor will not handle this task easily for the reasons noted above. If I were you, I would find a stand alone hex editor for this. I currently use the free Active@ Disk Editor that will search for hex bytes through an entire file easily. It has a find all button that shows all matches in an isolated Find Results pane that you may click to navigate to found results. It’s 100% free and easy to find.


    THX, at the moment i try UltraEdit, but will try this “Active@ Disk Editor” also because it’s FREE

    EmEditor v20.8 beta 11 (20.7.911) addresses this issue.
