Just wanted to confirm please, if what I am experiencing is a limitation. And if there is a workaround -- output file to be opened and used in Excel.

Using Wireshark 2.4.0 with a custom heuristic LUA dissector, and exporting to CSV file format, some fields with multiple values resulting in text length of greater than 255 are truncated in the CSV file. Sample shown below for a value type column, with 56 "Float" value types.


I also noticed the 255 text length limit when using PSML file format for export.
