Is it possible to edit fields of type VARBINARY as text?

In the current version (7.x), fields of this type are displayed as hex.

I have fields that have to be VARBINARY but they almost always have ASCII printable characters in them that I have to edit often.

Thanks!

Very nice work on the program. It's a great timesaver!

If I can find a solution to this, there will be no reason for me to hang on to my old copy of MySQL Front. :)

You can try the "View binary data as text (instead of HEX)" toolbar button. It's the one that has a red "0x" icon.

Ah! Perfect!

Now I have a new favorite SQL interface!

Thanks!
