How to select long text truncated by "(more)"?

I have a pretty big log file that I have to search for a needle... when I do find that needle, I actually need to copy the NEXT line, not the line I found. But that line I need to copy is too long, so it gets truncated by "(more)". I see the lien in the left-hand details pane, but nothing in the right-hand details pane. How do I copy this line?? If I select the text, the "(more)" gets copied, not the actual text. This file is too big for me to open in an editor.

Update - even if I do search and find the actual line I need, it too is getting truncated with "(more)", and even if I use "Copy selected results" from the top results pane, I still don't get the full text.

Hi Michael,

The limit for the amount of characters shown can be found in Settings > Result View Settings > Show this many characters for each search result. The maximum you can set it to is 10,000, but we can increase this, so I've added it to our feature request list. We don't guarantee that feature requests will be implemented, or offer timelines on possible implementation. We'll be sure to let you know if we do add it to our planned features in a future version.

You could also setup another program, like Notepad++ in the "Other Application" tab of the Settings window. When you right click on the result line, you can select "Open with other application", and it should open the file directly to the selected line.

Hope that helps!
