PopChar Win 5.5 runs smoothly on Windows 8


Hagenberg, Austria: January 23, 2013 - Ergonis Software today announced the release of PopChar Win 5.5, the Windows version of the company's award-winning tool for system-wide search and insertion of special characters and umlauts.

For many customers, the most important news about this new version is probably that PopChar Win 5.5 has been tested thoroughly to run smoothly on Microsoft's new Windows 8 operating system. The new version also enables security features like ASLR, a security technology offered by Microsoft operating systems to hinder some types of attacks. The new version also supports Unicode 6.2, the latest release of the Unicode Standard.

Furthermore, PopChar Win 5.5 offers improved support for the mouse wheel, which now always controls the PopChar window, even when the focus is in the search field. The new version finally delivers a number of other enhancements and fixes, like improved visual feedback about the current font-specific zoom size.

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. PopChar makes it easy to navigate and search within fonts that contain thousands of special characters. Web designers especially will enjoy the ability to insert HTML symbols.
