carlosqt: Works on NB 7.1

A hexadecimal editor that can be opened from the context menu of all files.
The plugin fully supports Undo/Redo. Changes are buffered and written to disk only when you save the file.
The data is shown in hexadecimal and as text dump with switchable encodings. This is really useful if you want to inspect a file containing text without knowing the used encoding.

Compatible to NB 8.1 ?
is this plugin at least usable wihtout danger in NB 8.1?
After installing, can't open files with enter anymore.
After installing this plugin, I tried to open a .gitignore file, readme.md or a simple .txt file with select the file in the Project window and hit enter, I only here a sound but I can't open the file. Double click has the same problem. Only on right click the file, open, I can open it. This is a strange bug. Please can you fix it?
Default editor problem caused by too low 'position'
In Installer.java , the position attribute is set to 175.
This causes the "Open as Hex" action to be the first action in the list for all "unknown" file types. Increasing it to 250 seems to resolve the problem.
To "patch" an existing installation go to the "NetBeans config"/Loaders directory, and update
<attr name="position" intvalue="175"/>
to 250 in the .nbattrs files in the subtree
Good Editor bad installation decisons
Excellent editor but it installs as the default editor, awful decision, and does not appear in the plugin manager so can't be deactivated or uninstalled.
I totally agree, it is a worthy plugin, but HexEditor as default is so aggravating, I will disable the plugin until this gets fixed. Otherwise good work!
The plugin installed well, integrates well and is usefull, but putted itself as the default action for opening a file. If it installed itself as an alternative, it wil be very nice! also, a number encoding view at the pointer position will be very usefull (for viewing files with data, so the data at pointer position is viewed as int, float, bigdecimal, etc. (I mean not serialized, just data in binary format.).
Best regards, and congrats for the nice work!
