PopChar Win 7.1 supports Unicode 8.0 and is ready for Windows 10


Perg, Austria: September 29, 2015 - Ergonis Software today announced PopChar Win 7.1, an improved version of the company's award-winning tool for efficiently exploring fonts and inserting special characters on Windows.

Since 1987, PopChar has been the best-known and highly acclaimed tool for finding and inserting special characters on the Mac. Since 2004, PopChar has been available also on Windows. With PopChar, inserting any character is as easy as clicking it in the PopChar table, and you can even search large fonts for characters by their Unicode names. Unfortunately, you often don't know the Unicode name of the desired character, so you don't know which search terms to enter. But you do know what the desired character looks like. With PopChar 7, you can now simply show PopChar what you want.

A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft released the final version of Windows 10. We are glad to announce that PopChar Win 7.1 has been tested and runs smoothly on the final version of Windows 10 (32 and 64 bit).

PopChar Win 7.1 also supports Unicode 8.0, the most recent update to the Unicode Standard. Unicode 8.0 introduces 7716 new characters, including six new scripts and new symbols, with letters to support African languages, lowercase Cherokee symbols, new Emoji symbols, and more. The new Unicode standard has been defined only recently, and fonts that support it have yet to be developed, but PopChar 7.1 is already prepared for releases of fonts that contain the new characters.

Also new in PopChar Win 7.1 are searchable descriptions and Mandarin pronunciations of Chinese characters. This makes PopChar a first-class citizen on Chinese systems and very useful for anyone who has to work with Chinese characters.

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.
