Change Current Position Dialog

Use the Change Current Position dialog to move the current position used in later steps. It is launched in the New Custom File Type or Edit Custom File Type dialogs by selecting Add > Change Current Position.

On this dialog you can:

  • Change the position of the Reference Point:
    The beginning of the file – Search starts from the beginning of the file (Byte 0).
    The current file position – Search starts at the current position of the Reference Point.
    The end of the file – Search starts after the last byte in the file. If this Reference Point is selected, you must use a negative offset.
  • Move a number of bytes from the Reference Point:
    Use this offset – Enter a value that represents the number of bytes from the Reference Point, where the pointer should be moved to. Negative values go left from the Reference Point.
    Use the offset in this variable – Select a variable containing an integer value that represents the number of bytes from the Reference Point, where the pointer should be moved to.
