I love working with HeidiSQL but I'm missing a feature but I'm not sure if it's too borderline: display binary columns as text if possible.
Some background: I'm working with a software where lots of columns are of type VARBINARY, TINYBLOB or similar. Most of the time plaintext is stored in there (it seems the decision to make this fields BINARY was for performance/storage reasons and was not in my hand).
HeidiSQL shows the content of BINARY columns as hex no matter what. SQLYog shows the content of BINARY columns "readable" if the content "translates" into ascii (maybe even iso8859/utf-8, did not check) and as binary if "real" binary data is stored.
Is it possible to implement this in HeidiSQL as well?
