I did add a column data.text and enabled it (https://ask.wireshark.org/questions/14011/customcolumn-datatext), so far the package content is displayed fine.
Now I would like to only show only certain characterfields there, for example the first ten chars, or char 5 to 8. Is this possible? I tried data.text but it did not work

This is not possible out-of-the-box. You could however use a LUA script to extract portions of a field and put the result in a new field. Or you could file an "Enhancement Request" at https://bugs.wireshark.org for this functionality and hope that some developer finds interest in developing this functionality.
