More and more content plugins provide a fulltext search which is very nice. This plugins need to convert the whole content of a document into plain text and return it to Total Commander. Users want to view such documents as plain text using Quick View or Lister.

A content plugin developer currently needs to write an extra plugin which requires additional time for the developer and additional configuration work the user. In addition the plugin doesn't have to be as fast as speedy internal Lister.

It would be a great feature if Total Commander could use the content plugins to extract the text of a document supported by the Content plugin and display them using the internal Lister.

Content plugins capable of extracting text for certain documents could be integrated into the Lister plugin configuration. Both plugin systems use the same detect string system so this should work fine.
