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"

comment How to generate compounded diacritical fonts for Sanskrit with XeTeX and LuaTeX?
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.

Oh, and the dots remain a little bit bigger than the i dot which is not the case with my example. You can see this if you zoom in very closely. Well, it's not so important. I just wonder why it is this way.

Thanks alot, that's a wonderful solution that works both in XeTeX and LuaTeX. One more thing: Is there a way to make this searchable and copyable in pdf? If I copy + paste this I only get the seperated compound parts, not the whole symbol, e.g. ¯r. instead of ṝ

In XeTeX this works without \UndeclareUTFComposite. In LuaTeX even with \UndeclareUTFComposite the dots are too big with the solution cited above. How am I supposed to redefine \d and \.?

comment German APA reference: origyear field is incomplete (needs reprinttitle)
Almost ... Now concerning INBOOK entries it's: Surname, F. (2000). Title. In Surname, F., Title (pp. 1-4). Location: Publisher. (Originally published 1999 as F. Surname, Title) while it's supposed to be: Surname, F. (2000). Title. In F. Surname, Title (pp. 1-4). Location: Publisher. (Originally published 1999 as F. Surname, Title)

Now its: F. Surname (2000). ... (Originally published 1999 as F. Surname, Title) - But it should be: Surname, F. (2000). ... (Originally published 1999 as F. Surname, Title)

comment German APA reference: origyear field is incomplete (needs reprinttitle)
Thanks alot, the 2nd edit is almost it. But the name order is still wrong. APA (and DGP) wants order of names to look like this depending on the position: Surname, F. (2000). Title. In F. Surname, Title (pp. 1-4). Location: Publisher. (Originally published 1999 as F. Surname, Title) - Now it looks like this: F. Surname (2000). ... (Originally published 1999 as Surname, F., Title) - So we need only a modification of the order of origauthor names.

comment Bibliography backref on new line with smaller font size
This is a wonderful solution and exactly what I was looking for. - But it behaves a little bit faulty, at least if being used with biblatex-apa style. \addperiod always adds a period - even after additional remarks in parentheses and after URLs where no periods are supposed to be. If I comment out this line the final period vanishes but also from any other bibliography entry where it is needed. How to resolve this?
