Hi Walter, No, the UnifiedHighlighter does not behave as if this setting were true.
The docs say: `hl.preserveMulti`:: If `true`, multi-valued fields will return all values in the order they were saved in the index. If `false`, the default, only values that match the highlight request will be returned. The first sentence there is the essence of it. Notice it's not conditional on wether there are highlights or not. The UH won't return values lacking a highlight. Even hl.defaultSummary isn't triggered because *some* of the values have a highlight. As I look at the pertinent code right now, I imagine a solution would be to provide a custom PassageFormatter. If we can assume for this use-case that you can use hl.bs.type=WHOLE as well, then a a simpler PassageFormatter could basically ignore the passage starts & ends and merely mark up the original content in entirety, which is a null concatenated sequence of all the values for this field for a document. ~ David On Fri, Mar 29, 2019 at 2:02 PM Walter Underwood <wun...@wunderwood.org> wrote: > We are testing 6.6.1. > > wunder > Walter Underwood > wun...@wunderwood.org > http://observer.wunderwood.org/ (my blog) > > > On Mar 29, 2019, at 11:02 AM, Walter Underwood <wun...@wunderwood.org> > wrote: > > > > In testing, hl.preserveMulti=true works with the unified highlighter. > But the documentation says that the parameter is only implemented in the > original highlighter. > > > > Is the documentation wrong?
