I have Surrounding Lines set to 5 Before and 7 After. However, blank lines aren't counted. I'm thinking this is desirable behavior some of the time. Is it configurable?

Here is my sample text file to search, including the blank lines.

Tom

Fred

Dave

Alex

Nancy

Sue

Ahmed

Joaquin

Alejandro

Guellermo

Liberace

Michael

Doris

Manny

Moe

Jack

Spike

Jones

You're correct that blank lines aren't counted (it's to make the most of the space). It's not a configurable option.
