When displaying strings, it would be nice to offer a Unicode view in addition to the plain Hex view, since the hex view is not that great.

It would be difference as it would group characters in groups of 2 bytes instead of 1, and would display Unicode characters on the right side.

I have checked this issue and observed that value visualizer window has a dropdown window with two values Hex8 and Hex16.
When select Hex8 showing value in group of 2 character and when select Hex 16 values show in group of 4 character.

Please confirm is this sufficient to close this bug .Do I need to check anything else ?
