Kibana and ES highlight in the table panel for expanded documents

As far as I was able to figure out it is enough to specify Highlight field
as "*" (single star character) in Kibana table panel settings to have ES
and Kibana highlight the matches it finds in all document fields available.
This is great and this is what I wanted. The only setback is that it seems
Kibana only does highlighting for documents in compressed state
(represented as a single line in the table panel). When document row is
expanded - highlight does not happen for its properties which is really

Is there anything I can do to have highlight working for expanded documents?

Thank you!
