Summary0001798: Hex volume column

As an avid user of Fasttracker 2, it does sting a lot that I can't use hexadecimal in the volume column.

I like that it allows you to use decimal or hex in the column number, so it sucks that there is no way to do this for the volume column.

TagsNo tags attached.

This is not an easy feat: The volume column is a single input context, meaning that both parameter and command letter need to be able to be entered at the same time depending on which key is pressed. In particular, this means that if numbers were entered in hex, they would conflict with commands A-F (of which commands A-D are available in XM format). While those commands can be remapped to a different key by the user already, this would mean that display and input key for those commands would be required to be inconsistent.

Can it at least be available for the XM format since it would not conflict with the volume commands?

XM volume commands are already compatible with a hex volume, so this would make the most sense to do.

As said, commands A-D are available in the XM format, so trying to enter those commands would conflict with trying to enter parameter digits A-D. There's no sense in implementing this for just one format - the difficult part of the work is the same for all formats, so once that is resolved, it would be the working everywhere.
