When selecting columns which contain numbers, V can add these numbers and display the sum in the status bar.


To do this, right-click on the bottom left of the status bar and select Sum Column Data.


If you want V to automatically display the sum as you are selecting the column, right-click on the status bar and enable Auto-Sum. You may copy the sum to the clipboard by right-clicking on the status bar and selecting Copy Sum to Clipboard.


By default, V looks for valid decimal numbers to add. If the numbers in the column are in hex, also press the SHIFT key.



Any lines in the selection that do not contain valid numbers will be ignored.

This only applies to selected columns. That is, text that has been selected with the Ctrl key pressed.

When selecting very large columns of data, the auto-sum option may slow down the selection process.
