Plugin convert problem
I am confused, could someone help?
I have a string like this: hYjKHGD9LUCJWa0/S+I7i5WDWAg=
I use Base64 Decode Plugin tool and get a string which does not paste here properly then I convert this value by ASCII -> HEX and get this result: 8588ca1c60fd2d408959ad3f4be23b8b95835808 which is correct.
When I do the same with this string: jKF0hAiWY//CXGhYsiyIb/LIqJI=
Base64 Decode works and I get a similar sting to upper one but when I use the converter ASCII -> HEX nothing happens.
I tried same with some other strings and most of them works fine but some of them does not.
Could this be a bug?

Are you using the Plugin Mime Tools (https://github.com/npp-plugins/mimetools) for Base64 Decode?
For ASCII->HEX you used the Converter Plugin?
N++ in 32bit or 64bit version?
What is the task you try to achieve?
Yes I use Plugins/Mime Tools/Base64 Decode.
Yes I use Plugins/Converter/ASCII -> HEX.
N++ in 32bit. (Don’t know why)
I try to hashcheck some big media files (DCP) before/after cloning.
I guess I need a plugin to convert between Base64 and HEX directly if there is one.
It looks like it is the xFF is causing the problem in the ASCII string.
If I convert ff from hex to ascii I get xFF but I cannot convert xFF back to hex.
Would it not be sufficient to calc a md5 or sha1|sha2|sha3 sum over your files? MD5 is available also in N++ under tools.
I checked the converter/issues, it was a known issue and they cannot solve I guess.
I tried different sums but sum1 seems to be the correct one.
