Hex Workshop v5.x Frequently Asked Question

When copying data in Hex Workshop (Edit\Copy or Ctrl+C), the hex text string placed on the clipboard is limited to 256 characters -- how can I increase this?

You can increase the maximum text string placed on the Windows Clipboard by adding the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\BreakPoint\Hex Workshop <version>\Advanced\MaxClipboardHexText to DWORD FFFFFFFF (or something greater then FF/256).

  1. Using RegEdit, navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\BreakPoint\Hex Workshop <version>\Advanced" where <version> is "6.7" for Hex Workshop v6.7.x or "v5.1" for Hex Workshop v5.1.x

  2. In the right-hand pane, right click and select "New\DWORD (32-bit) Value"

  3. Name the property "MaxClipboardHexText"

  4. Double-click on the new property, select, "Hexadecimal" as the base and enter FFFFFFFF as the Value Data (or something larger then FF/256)

  5. This change will be applied on the next copy operation and does not require a restart of the application.
