Large text file support

I often create large console output files with 10s of thousands of lines in them. They open fine in other editors, including notepad!, but they seem to choke in PyCharm. I get the error:

c:/foo/bar/baz.txt is too large for PyCharm editor.

Is this something that can be addressed? With such a fully-featured IDE, it feels odd to have to open these files in an external editor.

Thanks, Dmitry. I see that parameter controls intellisense behavior. I would actually rather leave that as the default, because I do not need intellisense on my log files and I think it will crash the IDE if I try to run intellisense on such a big log file. I just need to be able to open them in the editor. Is there perhaps another parameter, or no way to do this?

I'm in the same position as Joshua is; I have large log files (50-100MB in my case) which I would like to open and view with PyCharm. The setting you showed is for intellisense which is not needed for log files. Is there any way to open such files in PyCharm? I think setting them to read-only mode should help but it does not apparently.

Could you please answer?

Use the same instructions as for the intellisense setting but instead use 'idea.max.content.load.filesize', should do the trick.
