editor's review





Hex Edit is a comprehensive software utility developed for enthusiastic users who want to edit the hexadecimal code of a file.

It features a clean and intuitive interface that's quite comfortable to work with. Files can be opened for hex viewing via the file browser or drag-and-drop support.

After turning off read-only mode, you can jump to any offset and modify hex values seamlessly, just like in a common word processor.

Apart from performing standard operations, such as cut, copy, paste text and undo actions, you may write and append a selection, insert a file at the cursor position and data using various fill options, toggle highlighting, set bookmarks, as well as use a calculator for hex values.

It is possible to compute checksums (e.g. CRC-32, MD5), encrypt or decrypt selected text, compress and decompress data, generate random bytes to fill in spaces, flip bytes, toggle between Little and Big Endian mode, increment and decrement data, as well as record and play macros for repetitive tasks. These are just some of the tools provided by Hex Edit.

As far as options are concerned, you may establish file type filters, configure keystroke macros, customization history lists, set the tool to save settings on exit automatically, change the workspace display mode, and many others.

The tool has minimal impact on overall performance, so it does not hog CPU and memory. It is very responsive to commands and performed smoothly throughout our evaluation, without making the OS hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Thanks to its wide array of settings, Hex Edit should satisfy advanced users in hex editing.
