I want to return the first n characters of the field if nothing returns from the highlight query - this should technically be covered by the no_match_size functionality, but it doesn't seem to be working.
The amount of text you want to return from the beginning of the field if there are no matching fragments to highlight. Defaults to 0 (nothing is returned).
My problem is exactly like a previous post here that was never answered: Highlighter doesn't work with custom _all field and no_match_size.
Does anyone know how to get this working, have any insights, or confirmation that this is a bug? Thanks!
