Can I see context around the search results in the "Hits" tab?

0 votes

Is it possible to see a few lines above / below a matched search result (like you can in tools like GitHub)?

I have a search whose meaning is highly dependent on context across the dozens of files it appears in. Right now, I open each hit and navigate to the line in the file to get that context.

I'm hoping there's an easier way.

Yes, in FileLocator Pro you can show surrounding lines by clicking on the '+' sign beside the line.
