Behavior change with "Find result" window

With an old Notepad++ version, it was possible to copy-paste the whole text of the “Find result” window. By the whole text, I mean:
- The number of hits and files
- The path of every files
- The Line number
- and finally, the matching hit
Search “Fix” (220 hits in 39 files)
C:\Program Files\Notepad++\change.log (37 hits)
Line 1: Notepad++ v5.6.8 new features and fixed bugs (from v5.6.7) :
Line 3: 1. Fix comment stream without selection bug.
Line 4: 2. Fix Find in files results highlighting regression bug.
C:\Program Files\Notepad++\updater\gpl.txt (2 hits)
Line 254: Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
Now, with Npp v7.3.3, when I select all and copy stuff, only the matching hits are copied, without the line number, the filename and blablabla.
Does someone know how the renable this? Or is this a bug?
Note: In version 5.6.8 (i know, it’s old), the copy/paste returns all the stuff mentioned.

instead of using the mouse to select all, click into the find result window and do pressing ctrl+a and ctrl+c.
