Preview PDF's in full-text search

Zotero allows indexing of pdf documents and full text searching them. But it would be great if zotero would show a small preview of the place(s) in each document where the searched terms are found. Similar as it is done in google books.
  • I second this request. The only reason I have not fully switched from Mendeley is that I frequently use this feature in Mendeley to understand how a search term is being used in each paper. Often I cannot remember a specific paper that I want, but I can remember a particular phrase in the paper, and I use search along with the preview feature to quickly find the paper that I want.
  • That's been planned for a long time and Zotero actually "knows" the surrounding text of search results under the hood.
    My understanding it's getting closer, but probably not exactly imminent.
