Directory filtering and multi-line results in fulltextsearch

I just set up the fulltextsearch apps and elasticsearch following the tutorial in the wiki (https://github.com/nextcloud/fulltextsearch_elasticsearch/wiki and https://github.com/nextcloud/fulltextsearch/wiki/Basic-Installation).

There are several things that annoy me:

  • Only 10 results are displayed per page although there is plenty of empty space below and I can’t find an option to adapt the number of results per page
  • Only a single line of context (i.e. text surrounding a match) is displayed for each result
  • There is no option to limit the search to a/the current directory

I then went searching a little bit and came across https://help.nextcloud.com/t/full-text-search-elasticsearch-v0-7-1/31835/8 and saw that there is a screenshot of a search interface containing an option to limit search to the current directory and another one showing multi-line results.

Have they been removed? Or is there some hidden switch that can activate these features? They would be extremely useful.
