PopChar X 6.2 with simpler search and other usability improvements


Hagenberg, Austria: March 19, 2013 - Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 6.2, an improved version of the company's award-winning tool for efficiently exploring fonts as well as finding and inserting special characters.

PopChar X 6.2 includes many usability improvements that make finding and inserting special characters and umlauts easier than ever. There's a new command-F shortcut for quickly finding characters by name. But if this is still not fast enough, you can even simply start typing when the cursor is in the PopChar window and enter the search term right away. There are also new context menu commands "Copy Character Description" and "Copy Font List" for copying a brief summary of the selected Unicode character and the list of font names, respectively.

The new version supports Unicode 6.2, the latest release of the Unicode Standard, and adds a new font matching technique that reliably finds fonts for font family names. PopChar now also contains enhanced user interface elements, in particular for retina displays.

In addition, PopChar X 6.2 solves a problem where some fonts could not be detected in certain applications (such as MS Word), works around window flickering on Mountain Lion, and adds a number of further enhancements.

Visit Ergonis Software's website to view the long list of further improvements and enhancements contained in this release and to download a trial copy.

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.

Availability and Ordering

PopChar X 6.2 requires OS X 10.5.8 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8).
