Hi HansvanderMeer,

I'll try sooner as possible to test these PDF on my virtual OS X Mavericks. Some tricks about mtxrun and lua are explained by Hans Hagen in a xml/pdf file doc entitled luatools/mtxrun/context dated May 12, 2016 : tools-mkiv.pdf

Remembered that Hans Hagen recently told me (and Jean-Pierre reminded me of this) that the document can be generated with:
   context --extra=setups --overview i-context.xml
I did this and the resultant document now has in the document properties:
  PDF Producer: LuaTeX-0.95.0
  PDF Version : 1.7 (Acrobat 8.x)
This document is searchable indeed, both in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and in Apple's Preview.
Conclusion: the problem must be --at least on my perfectly normal straight out-of-the-box MacOSX-- located in the producer "Mac OSX (version) Quartz PDFContext". Why? About that I am in the dark.
