Feature request: configuring search results view

When I click on F3 function key to browse the contents of a file, (my tmda logs for example,) if I do F6 or F7 to search for something, the found pattern is displayed at the top of the file.

I actually want to see about 4 lines previous to what I'm looking for.

Could we have some way to configure mc to display it's search results n lines down from the top of the screen please?

That would be a great help.

Thanks for all the effort in developing mc.

It's the first thing I install when doing a fresh Linux installation.

Kind Regards,

Keith Roberts
