Hello. If you need view chars in system encoding (like me) go to 'MainForm.cs' -> 'UpdateDisplay()' method and: 1. add 'Encoding encoding = System.Text.Encoding.Default;' to top 2. find line 'lineAscii += string.Format(this.asciiFormat, currentByte >= 32 && currentByte < 128 ? char.ConvertFromUtf32(currentByte) : ".");' 3. replace it with 'lineAscii += string.Format(this.asciiFormat, (currentByte >= 32) ? encoding.GetString(new byte[] { currentByte }) : ".");'

Hi! Very nice and useful tool, but... I have noticed that Search Next often tends to be stuck on the first occurence it finds (when searching ASCII at least). I know for example that "Fatal" exists in a few places in a crash dump file but it acts as if it doesn't find any more instances, just keep "finding" the same place over and over. Even when I move the cursor or scroll away and open the Search window to search again for the same word it just find the same place over and over.
