Must break event after x characters

I have events that are all 144 chars.

Is there a setting in props.conf (not regex) that I can use to specify 144 chars to break after? I can't find anything in the docs.

If not, does anyone have a solid regex to do this?

In props.conf? Check.
Not regex? Uhhhmmm...

Try this:

[144_char_sourcetype]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
LINE_BREAKER = .{144}()

The empty capturing group () is important.

was hoping for a char_length= but that works just as well 🙂

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
