    Hello and thanks for this great tool!

    I sometimes have huge text files on which I need to apply some computation.
    Example: a file with 4M lines (yes I know it's a lot but not my fault) in which I have to apply an advanced search/replace pattern to extract the "few" 1M lines that interest me…

    Now, notepad++ does this with no problem, only it takes a while (like 10 minutes in my case). It would be very nice if there was some sort of progress bar, even a very text percentage on the status bar or anything else to have an idea of how much time I have to wait ;)

    Thanks for the feedback,
    Cheers!
