User Reviews

  • Very useful tool, because many programs save info into files that are actually binary, but some fields are textual. In this case RecordEditor comes to the scene to preserve binary format that traditional text editors may damage.

  • Decent little app. Helped me a lot. One feature request. I spend all this time putting record layouts together, and I have no way to share them. No export, no nuthin.

  • Record-editor is excellent! Thanks.
