I used VIEW /VH on a file. Now any time I use VIEW, I get "vertical hex" mode. It seems to be stuck. Permanently! Exiting and restarting the shell doesn't release it. Even uninstalling and reinstalling didn't fix it. Anybody else?

The VH option is sticky. Once it is set, it will persist until you explicitly clear it. Even if you don't use /VH on the command line, it will not clear your previous setting.

I can turn it off using one of the buttons on the toolbar.
Yes, that is what you are supposed to do. Alternatively, you can specify /NOVH on the command line.

Charles.

That works; thank you.

(Rex: I guess I was misunderstanding the help file re: /TEXT. And should /NOVH be in there as well?)
