Under the covers the Show command determines what type of file is being processed and displays it in an appropriate format. If there is no "appropriate format" - e.g. for .exe files - it displays in hex. I would like to have an option to force display in hex regardless of file type. For example: Show myphoto.jpg HEX
Show PLUGIN=text.dll will do that (as long as the file doesn't look like a text file, the text plugin is what will display it as hex).
