Ah, thanks.  I was a bit confused, I think I thought that was showing
the 1000 characters in a result, not what you described below.

The highlighting/description code only returns matching snippets if a
match was found; otherwise, it returns the first N characters of the
description. Can you verify that the search term(s) actually appear(s)
the first 1000 characters of the PDF (which, according to your config,
how much you're capturing as a property)? Otherwise, you're likely just
seeing normal behaviour.
