File size filter for "find in files" function

When we want to search text in a directory using Notepad++, it will take some time if the directory contains large binary files.
Usually, the text files we want to search is below 1MB, so if there’s a file size filter for “find in files” function, it will be much easier for us to search.
You may think that I can use the file extensions filter to filter out binary files. But sometimes we don’t know what files will contains the text and what binary files are in the directory.

Admittedly, it’s a limitation with no great workaround. Your best course of action would be to create a feature request for this if the same one doesn’t already exist (search first before creating new).
