What is the Large File Editor?
The Large File Editor enables editing of very large Gigabyte or even Terabyte size files and is part of the Liquid Studio integrated development environment (IDE). It is included in the Free Community Edition of Liquid Studio.
The Large File Editor comprises a text editor view and a binary hex editor view. The text editor support XML validation and formatting and JSON validation and formatting.
Opening files in the Large File Editor
When you open a file with a known file extension (e.g. XML or JSON), the appropriate editor will be opened within Liquid Studio. If the file is of sufficient size to require the Large File Editor (as per the user settings), then the Large File Editor view will be opened instead.
You can view the Large File Editor User Settings from the menu:
Tools->Options->Editors->Large File Editor
|Large File Editor Settings|
Files with known file extensions (e.g. XML or JSON) will automatically open in the large file editor if the above criteria are met. However, as from version 20.7.3 of Liquid Studio, if you specifically want to open a file in the Large File Editor, for example, if you have a file with a non-standard file extension or want to open a file containing Binary Data, you can use the menu:
File->Open->Open In Large File Editor
|Open with Large File Editor|
