comment How to make ligatures searchable and copiable in LuaTeX?
Hello Mico! :) Wow, that's scary, you found your way into this thread on your own and in no time... Anyway, your support is much appreciated! - Update: It's not Windows. I had compiled on a (k)ubuntu machine with TeXLive installed via package manager, everything fine. Now I deinstalled and reinstalled from TeXLive 2013 DVD to have a more up-to-date version. And now the problem comes up again. So it's either something with the TeX version (which would concern TeXLive 2013 and MacTeX2013) or it's because of the font, which I also reinstalled. I don't now anymore. But I keep on figuring it out.

Well, seems I'm not the only one with this problem. Look at the manual for selnolig: ctan.math.utah.edu/ctan/tex-archive/macros/luatex/latex/… The abstract reads "Other f-ligatures, such as fb, fh, fj and fk, are suppressed globally", copy-paste: "Other f-ligatures, such as 昀, 昀, fj and fk, are suppressed globally"

Alright. This seems to be a persistent Windows problem. I did a clean install of Windows with just some Adobe programs and TeXLive installed. The problem persists. It might be caused by some Chinese fonts that are installed by default. Though I don't know why these fonts get mixed up. The bad thing is, it the Chinese characters are coded into the PDF and show up even on other systems. I also did a test on an Ubuntu machine, compiling the PDF there, and no problems with the same font version.

I got it. I completely deleted the installed font and reinstalled it. It seems to have been corrupted. Now it's working. Thanks alot for your kind help, everyone! - Edit: No it seems to persist in another document... What is going on?? Let me check this...

I tried Arno Pro (also with ligatures) and it copies fine. So it's specific Minion Pro. "Version 2.110;PS 2.000;hotconv 1.0.68;makeotf.lib2.5.35818" is a newer version. Where is this from? Some bundle?

I get the same stuff with SumatraPDF 2.4 portable: "昀 ff tt" So is it the font version? Do you use TeXLive 2013 and TeXstudio? What does your font version say?

Indeed, I would like to retain the ligatures while being able to search and copy them.

If I copy it including the formating, I get: "昀i ff tt"

Yes it's an OpenType font. It reads version 2.108. I'm using TeXLive 2013 and TeXstudio on a Windows 7 computer. The problem occurs when I'm copying from Adobe Acrobat 10. These are the symbols I get by copying: "昀ff tt"

This works indeed. Just replace \newunicodechar{Ḍ}{\d{D}} with '\newunicodechar{Ḍ}{% \BeginAccSupp{method=hex,unicode,ActualText=1e0c}% \d{D}% \EndAccSupp{}% }' etc. Look up the hex code for each symbol. With this the symbols are copyable and searchable.
