PopChar X 2.2 adds automatic font detection for many popular applications


Hagenberg, October-18-2004, ergonis software today announced the immediate availability of PopChar X 2.2, the highly acclaimed tool for "typing" unusual characters easily without having to remember keyboard combinations.

"Up to now, PopChar X could guess the current font in only a few applications and users had to manually choose the required font in many situations. Version 2.2 makes automatic font detection available for all applications that have a regular Font menu in the menu bar, including Word, Excel, Illustrator, QuarkXPress, InDesign, FileMaker and BBEdit. This will be a huge time-saver for our customers!" said Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of ergonis software.

Besides the improved font detection, the update incorporates several other improvements, as well as some bug fixes.

PopChar X 2.2 is a recommended update for all users of earlier versions of PopChar X. The upgrade is free for customers having purchased their license within the last two years. If the 2 years update period has expired, a 2 years update renewal can be purchased.

Whereas other software vendors offer upgrades at a reduced price for just a single new version, macility licenses cover ALL subsequent releases of PopChar X and PopChar Pro within two years, starting with the date of purchase.

License renewals are available for only US$ 19.99 (single license) at: https://store.ergonis.com/store/popchar/orderupgr.php

The new version can be downloaded from: http://www.macility.com/downloads/ More information on PopChar X is available from: http://www.macility.com/products/popcharx/
