Hex sequence bug?
Alessio Spleen Castello
I need to substitute the last 4 chars of several lines of text with an hexadecimal sequence starting from 000D.
So I select (alt+selection) the last 4 chars of every line, I press alt+c for the column editor, but when I’ going to insert the initial number it tells me that it accepts only numbers.
yes, use the decimal representation in initial number, as you know, a=10.
Ah, yes ! You need to type in the initial number, in a decimal form, although counting will be, correctly, generated, with hexadecimal numbers !
For instance, if your numbers sequence have to begin with the hex number
1CE, you must write the decimal form of
1CE, that is to say the number
462, as the Initial number field of the Column / Multi selection Editor
Then, choose the
Hexformat and, possibly, check , or not, the Leading zeros option and click on the OK button !
P.S. : Hexadecimal number
1CE= 1 *
16^2+ 12 *
16^1+ 14 *
16^0= 256 + 192 + 14 =
