PopChar Win 6.4 supports Unicode 7.0 and shows characters in Unicode context


Perg, Austria: February 03, 2015 - Ergonis Software today announced PopChar Win 6.4, a new release of the company's award-winning tool for efficiently dealing with fonts and special characters on Windows.

PopChar Win 6.4 supports the brand-new version 7.0 of the Unicode standard. Unicode 7.0 integrates 2834 new characters, and PopChar Win 6.4 can now identify these new characters by their names. Among these characters are the new currency symbol for the Russian ruble as well as many pictographic symbols, geometric symbols, arrows, and ornaments originating from the Wingdings and Webdings sets. The new Unicode standard has been defined only recently, and fonts that support it have yet to be developed, but PopChar Win 6.4 is already prepared for releases of fonts that contain the new characters.

PopChar has been available even before the Unicode consortium was founded, and has been supporting the Unicode standard since 2002. In fact, PopChar has become indispensable for everyone dealing with special characters and different fonts, since Unicode fonts have evolved to contain tens of thousands instead of hundreds of characters per font.

PopChar Win 6.4 also introduces a new feature "Show in Unicode context" that lets you easily search for a character and then view this character in its Unicode context. This is very helpful to find similar other characters in the neighborhood within the Unicode table.

In addition, PopChar Win 6.4 offers other improvements, like optical improvements when printing "Font Preview" or "Sample Text", and more.

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. Web designers especially will enjoy the ability to insert HTML symbols.
