Maximum size of documents to extract text from
You can now specify the size of the file that should be indexed by Sohodox. For e.g. you can choose to extract and index files that are less than 4 mb in size by using this option. Please note that this option is only available for MS Access DB.

By default the limit of the file size is set to 1 mb. This means that files larger then 1 mb will not be indexed. For slower machines it is recommended to choose a lower value. A larger value will affect the performance of MS Access DB . This option is useful in a multi-user scenario where you can disable extracting and indexing of text on slow machines for large files without disabling full text search.
