The File View is the view in which the file is displayed. The view can be in one of two modes - Text and Hex, and can be configured in several ways.


The font in which the file is displayed may be selected from the Fonts section of the Preferences Dialog box. Note that V only supports non-proportional (or fixed pitch) display fonts - like Courier.


Right-clicking on any part of the File View will display a pop-up menu containing most of the available commands.
