VIEW permanently in /VH mode ...?

#4
I used VIEW /VH on a file. Now any time I use VIEW, I get "vertical hex" mode.
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.

Okay.

That works; thank you.

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

I can't reproduce this unless I click on the VH icon on the toolbar (or
press Alt-J). Just starting VIEW with & without /VH doesn't make it
"sticky" for me.

/NOVH isn't a documented option (in V or VIEW).
