Edit Anything

Professional text and hex editing
with Binary Templates technology.





What's New in Version 13.0

Introducing 010 Editor v13 with support for Projects and Workspace files. Use projects to store a list of files in a tree structure for editing. Use Workspaces to easily switch all open files. Projects support multi-select and drag and drop.

View projects using the Project section of the Workspace or the new Project tab. Edit projects using the Project menu or by right-clicking on a project node. Files can be added individually or a whole folder can be added to a project with a file mask.

Tabs can now be torn off to a new window. Drag the tab up or down and release. Multiple Floating Tab Groups can now be created and tab animation is better when dragging tabs between groups.

Jump from a variable in the Template Results to the source code that generated the variable. Either right-click and select 'Goto Definition' to jump to the code where the variable was created, or right-click and select 'Goto Type Definition' to jump to where the struct was defined.

Middle-click scrolling is now supported. Middle-click and drag to scroll or middle-click once to enter scroll mode.

Perform merges after a comparison. Use the four icons above the compare results table or Ctrl+Up/Down/Left/Right to jump between differences and copy differences between files.
