How to highlight the “Data” segment of packets?


Hey there!

To be able to investigate only differences in data of TCP packets, but the bytes before of other protocols like Internet Protocol make the packets difficult to read.

Can I filter out just the bytes of all other protocols and leave the data bytes to read alone?

When I activate the column Custom() =, then it cuts the bytes after 30 or so bytes. It is shown like "75b6022eb9460eb9060875ba1438fb11bcc15464b27d59d0...". Can I fix this?

Or can I just automatically highlight the data bytes, so without clicking on the "Data (xx bytes)" entry of each packet?
