view binary objects as ascii or uft-8 in the viewer
Currently binary object - bytes in python 3 are displayed as binary in Hex.
It is possible to go to edit mode on a record and choose to switch to ascii or utf-8. However this is cumbersome since one cannot see many records at the same time and needs to push several buttons to get there.
It would be nicer if one can view binary data from the viewer and choose how it is displayed - ascii / utf-8 / Hex etc. Very similar to how once can change the display of numbers or dates - only for binary. This can be sometimes very helpful with all sorts of Unicode to text conversions.
The code for this exists already since once can do it in the editor, its just a simple addition of a menu that can be very helpful in some cases.
