Super Unicode Editor
Super Unicode Editor is a useful and easy to use software solution that combines two important components, specifically a simple text editor and a hex editor, all in one package.
The program is sufficiently easy to understand and handle, as it allows you to open any document you want, despite it being create mainly for binary files which might contain Unicode characters in various formats, namely UTF-8, UTF-16 or UTF-32. As such, you can choose from several viewing modes from the 'Edit Format' menu, with 'Automatic' being the default setting, but also providing you with options like 'Text', 'Text With Markup' or 'Binary', depending on which one best suits your needs.
Super Unicode Editor can assist you in editing binary files just like a regular hex editor, but the difference is that it lets you view each individual byte in the document as a character. At the same time, it allows you to work with any Unicode text document as you would in other similar applications, for instance Notepad, offering multiple functions: 'Copy', 'Paste', 'Cut', 'Delete', 'Find', 'Replace', and others.
However, unlike other tools with similar functionality, Super Unicode Editor is capable of reading several Unicode formats. Additionally, rather than displaying a grid of bytes, the utility enables you to view and edit files that feature a grid of symbols of variable length as individual characters, highlighting the one you are currently hovering over so you can distinguish it easier.
Aside from being able to view multiple Unicode formats, Super Unicode Editor can also convert them, as a whole, into several other formats, namely: 'Codepage', 'UTF-8', 'UTF-16', 'UTF-16 Big Endian', 'UTF-32', 'UTF-32 Big Endian' and 'Source Code'.
To conclude, Super Unicode Editor is a interesting and reliable application that can easily assist you in modifying binary documents, functioning both as a text and a hexadecimal editor that features numerous functions and options to help you in your work.
