PopChar X 5.2 features fine-tuned display of individual fonts


Hagenberg, Austria: April 12, 2011 - Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 5.2, a new version of the company's award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters.

PopChar X 5.2 focuses on metrics and font size. The most prominent change is a new slider at the bottom of the PopChar window that allows you to customize the display size of individual fonts in addition to the global setting in PopChar's preferences. The new slider is ideal for fonts with small and light characters that you want to appear in a larger size.

PopChar 5.2 also contains fine-tuned adjustments for many popular fonts. The program "knows" about 70+ fonts with unusual metrics and avoids large white areas around characters, which results in larger characters that are easier to read. Beyond that, PopChar 5.2 solves some known issues and reduces the CPU load when running in the background.

PopChar solves a problem faced by every technologist and multi-lingual worker. Inserting special characters into application documents can be frustrating and results in a steady loss of productivity. With PopChar, thousands of special characters are only a few clicks away. Just pop up the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character appears in your current document right away.
