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?November 9, 2019 at 4:50 pm #26351
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.November 9, 2019 at 5:00 pm #26352
THX, at the moment i try UltraEdit, but will try this “Active@ Disk Editor” also because it’s FREE
