Thank you, that solved my problem getting search hits without any

But now I am facing another problem. The excerpt is not highlighted anymore.
I am just getting a excerpt string of all property values of node
'custom:extendedProperties' without any highlighing. 
As our customer are currently used to query result highlighting this would
be a real disadvantage.

Does anyone know if query highlighing is supported with jcr:like?
