#708 Add ability to auto load binary data as subtree if it looks like there is SWF inside
Date created:
Type: feature
Visibility: Everybody

I ran into this today as I am working with a swf file that contains additional swf files under it, and more under that. To be able to see the SWF data I am forced to click on the binary data, then then click the "Click here to load it as subtree", but there is no way to multi-select -> right click -> open as subtree if SWF. Either having a setting in Settings to automatically do this on import, or to be able to call that upon multiple items and have it just be smart about whether it contains SWF inside or not. I would assume implementing this wouldn't be difficult at all as it's already able to detect if there is SWF inside, and there is already a method for converting from that binary data to SWF/subtree.
Few versions ago, there was implemented autoloading subSWFs, but it lead to large memory consumption/slow loading if the file/SWFs were large. I think I can put that option back in as optional configurable feature...

Awesome, thanks so much for this, will really help out with things!
Config setting added: autoLoadEmbeddedSwfs You can also select multiple binary datas and open inner swfs with one click. (When the setting is disabled)
