Increase hit highlighted summary length / make configurable
Currently, the HitHighlightedSummary value is shows hits from the first 10,000 characters of a document. When the hits are not included in the summary, it pulls a summary from a seemingly random part of the document.
This limit seems arbitrarily low. Many of our documents hit the limit after the first 5 pages, which often include a lot of boilerplate. It's caused a lot of confusion for our users and during usability testing, many expressed a lack of confidence in the search results ("why am I getting this result, is it broken?").
This limit should be increased, and preferably configurable on-premises, where it can be tailored to the needs of our content and usage.
Thanks for your feedback! We understand your concerns. There are several perspectives to take into consideration here and we’re reviewing these.
Suffering from the same problem. Please significantly increase this 10,000 character limit.
