Hex editor

Logisim includes an integrated hex editor for viewing and editing the contents of memory. To access it, bring up a pop-up menu for the memory component (Right-click on the component ) and select | Edit Contents.... | or in the properties select Contents.


The numbers in italics at left display memory addresses, written in hexadecimal. The other numbers display values starting from that memory address; the hex editor may display four, eight, or sixteen values per line, depending on what fits in the window. To help with counting, each group of four values has a larger space between.

You can navigate through memory using the scroll bar or using the keyboard.Typing hexadecimal characters will alter the currently selected value.

You can select a range of values by dragging the mouse, shift-clicking the mouse, or navigating through memory with the keyboard while depressing the shift key. Values may be copied and pasted using the | Edit | menu or the associated shortcuts key (Ctrl-C Ctrl-V,Ctrl-X...); the clipboard can also be transferred into other applications.

Two buttons (Open..., Save..) allow you to load or save data from a file. Information on file types can be found in Pop-up menus and files
