Search results limited to 2MB
« on: September 14, 2006, 09:56:40 am »
Hi,

Having just migrated from Slickedit V9 to V11, I'm now fighting the "enhanced" search function.

When performing a search which gives a large number of results, I get:

"Output larger than 2MB. Switching to files only mode."

I've not found anything in the help or on-line about this, or how to turn it off.

Any suggestions on how to disable / alter this limit on search output would be greatfully appreciated.

Doug.

Try using the set-var command on the command line to change the value of def_max_mffind_output

i.e. bring up the slick cmd line; type set-var <return>; type the name def_max_mffind_output and enter a new value.

chiming in with my thanks and also an update to the value that needs to be changed, it appears it is now: def_max_mffind_output_ksize massive thanks to Graeme for the original tip.
