Resource Editor: How To Edit StringTable Strings

Strings stored in Stringtables are primarily used as text in message boxes, list boxes, combo boxes, tooltips, and commands displayed in the statusbar. Stingtable strings can also contain control characters and placeholders (e.g., %d, %s).

Edit Strings with Resource Tuner

1. Expand the String Table (or Message Table) folder found in the Resource Tree view and select the specific string table resource you wish to edit.

2. Select the string entry from the table and make any desired changes in the edit box. You can also copy (Ctrl+C) or paste text from clipboard (Ctrl+V). A missing string or improperly altered placeholder string ('%s') can cause a modified program to crash at run time. So be careful.

3. Select 'File' 'Save File' to save the changes you have made to the target file.

String IDs cannot be edited. These values are hard coded into the target file. Changing them is likely to cause the modified program to crash.
