When doing a MIF update, I get the following warning:
Warning (113007): Byte addressed memory initialization file "armboot.hex" was read in the word-addressed format
Not surprisingly, when reading the memory, it is in fact offset by 4.
Now, I can't find where to turn on the option to read the .hex file using byte-addressing.
To make things worse, Intel's solution, found here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/quartushelp/17.1/index.htm#msgs/msgs/wmio_mio_byte_hex_word_read.htm
does NOT work since there is not any "Memory Editor" in the "Options" menu.
When I do find the "In System Memory Content" Editor in "Tools" there is no option for changing the addressing.
How can I get Quartus to properly read the .hex file using byte addressing?
Update: I was able to find the elusive "Memory Editor" window when I first opened a .mif file and had it active. Having a .hex file open did not work.
Is there a reason for this, or is it just poor user-interface?
Now I'm getting this warning, even though I have no idea where this .hex file is used and it does not show up in the Analysis & Synthesis RAM report...

HI, not sure this address your problem.
Tools memory content editor is not referred to files but to device thru JTAG.
To edit an Hex file you can use file -open select HEX-MIF then select file and edit.
Before to open edit as shown a panel require you about word size slecting number of bit:
after that cell editor pane appear on quartus editor space:
Not sure due offset byte /word can be 2 not 4 so you are reading 32 bit mode?
