HexEdit is hex editor that is renowned for its intuitive interface and ability to quickly and reliably edit files of any size (over 4Gb).
It has many options like: autofit, hex/decimal addresses, RO/RW, INS/OVR modes, easy font/size selection, mouse-wheel support, drag and drop, print selection (coalescing duplicate lines), margin/line-spacing, print preview, fast (Boyer-Moore) searches/replaces, compares, highlighter, clipboard support (binary, ASCII, EBCDIC, Unicode), bookmarks, window tabs & colour schemes.

It can continuously display over 60 properties in a pinable dialog: including decimal (8/16/32/64 bit values, big- or little-endian, signed/unsigned), IEEE/IBM floats, dates etc. You can also edit properties, eg. change a date. You can see characters as ASCII/ANSI, IBM/OEM (MSDOS), EBCDIC using the char set drop-down list.

Time-saving features include the Find tool (with drop-down history list) that allows quick searches for hex digits or strings, and hex/decimal jump tools.

The calculator allows file manipulation and is tightly integrated with macros making it simple to create and repeat complex operations.
