I've selected all from Preview and pasted it into GNU Emacs: no spaces 
between the text words (i.e. BriefArticle), and all glyphs were 
translated into \oldstyle{9}, \lambda, etc. It's worth to remember -- 
and reuse! Citing made easy ... finally.

Have you just input `\´ into Preview's search pane?

At least it found all sins, digits, and Latin letters ... Earlier 
versions of Abode Reader or Acrobat Reader failed completely. So it 
seems to me that these features are part of the progress in PDF 
versions ...

Wishful would be, to be able to switch the representation: the TeX 
names or the glyphs themselves, depending on what the target to paste 
to understands ... or being able to choose α or ⇀ to search for. That's 
what cmap tables for the OM? encodings could bring? (Right now they 
only support OT1, T1, TS1, and Cyrillic T2.)
