Request: Find All - Option to show subsequent x lines in search results.



  • “Find All in Opened Documents” and “Find All in Current Document” are absolutely brilliant - makes my life sooo much easier. I sometimes use it as a filtered summary for big log files. I think an option to show subsequent X lines in search results would be useful. Where X would be a determinable number of subsequent lines.

    So instead of showing:
    Line 44373: Web Service: XYZ Start: 04/11/2015 11:17:58.65
    Line 44407: Web Service: XYZ Start: 04/11/2015 11:18:04.03
    Line 44488: Web Service: XYZ Start: 04/11/2015 11:18:25.00

    it could show:
    Line 44373: Web Service: XYZ Start: 04/11/2015 11:17:58.65
    UserName: abc
    yyy success
    Line 44407: Web Service: XYZ Start: 04/11/2015 11:18:04.03
    UserName: abc
    yyy success
    Line 44488: Web Service: XYZ Start: 04/11/2015 11:18:25.00
    UserName: abc
    yyy fail

    Perhaps I’m using the wrong tool for the job (suggestions welcome). But, as a suggestion I hope this would make this great editor a tiny bit greater. Many thanks.



  • I’d suggest using the LineFilter2 plugin. I use it all the time to filter through huge log files. It is able to save lines before and after a search result.



  • Awesome, glad I asked. Many thanks.
