I would like to ask if there is a way to copy the binary stream of a packet.

I right click to the packet i want, then i select Copy-> Bytes-> Binary Stream, but when i try to paste it in a text editor it doesn't work. If i try the same for the Hex Stream everything works fine.

I also would like to ask if there is another way to copy the values of the Packet Bytes Pane so that i can paste them in a text editor?

Maybe using "Follow TCP stream" and then saving as RAW will do the trick?

I have tried it using "Follow UDP stream" but it didn't work.

According to the comments found in the source code: XXX - this is not understood by most applications, but can be pasted into the better hex editors - is there something better that we can do?

So I would not expect the binary stream to be easily pasted in a text editor
