Is there a hex/binary calculator in UltraEdit? For instance, to find the decimal value for hex value 493E.

I can't seem to find it in the menus (files can be edited in binary mode, but I simply want to convert to and from decimal and hex values).

You mean a hex to decimal converter. – martineau Jul 2 '12 at 14:03

Yes, there is a hex calculator, but it is well hidden. It is in the context menu (right-click or Shift + F10). In order to start it:

  1. Select a number in an existing document (or type some number in a new document and select it).
  2. Start menu command "Number Converter".

If the selection is empty or some letters are selected, nothing will happen when the menu command is started.

This was tested in UltraEdit v. 16.2.
