Hi team,

I have logs like this:

This is Tom This is Amy This is David This is Ben

I want the line breaking to be like this:

This is Tom
This is Amy
This is David
This is Ben

Here is my LINE_BREAKER config

LINE_BREAKER = (this)

And my result is like:

 is Tom
 is Amy
 is David
 is Ben

So how could I keep the line breaking regex? In my case, the "this"?

Many thanks.

I think I can answer my own question. Seems Line breaker needs 1 capturing group. Anything matched in the group will not be indexed.
So I updated the LINE_BREAKER to be:
LINE_BREAKER = (\s)this\s
