    Probably, these questions have already been answered, but since English is not my native language, and I find it inconvenient to look for it, I will ask here.
    1. Why is the search window limited to a specific number of characters? I think it would be more convenient if it were possible to look for very long texts.
    2. It would be great to add to the library also a search in other popular languages, except English. Are there any plans for this?

    1) The search is limited to 3200 characters because of the way the locations are calculated. It’s a mathematical limitation

    2) As far as I am aware, there are no plans to add new features to the Library. The best chance you have would be for someone else to write a Javascript snippet to highlight non-English words in search results (like the Anglishize feature), but you won’t be able to search for pages with text from another language, like the Search for pages “with random English words”.
