Roblox Player Console Log's "Search" function doesn't find anything inside a long string

Reproduction Steps

1) Publish a project with this:

local a = {}
for i=1, 1000 do
	table.insert(a, i)
  1. Run with Roblox Player and press F9 to open the Console Log
  2. Search for any number

Expected Behavior

The searched string should appear highlighted when found

Actual Behavior

Currently, the Search function actually behaves like a “Filter”.
But when searching for something, it should also take into account the internal content of the prints and highlight them when found:

Issue Area: Engine
Issue Type: Display
Impact: High
Frequency: Constantly

This doesn’t seem like a bug. Although it would be a nice feature, I don’t think the search on the developer console ever highlighted or singled out a search query; it simply looks for outputs with the matching text in it.

Thanks for the report. Can you please file this as a feature request ?
