Exclusive offer gives purchasers of PopChar X a 30% discount off Take Control font handling ebooks


Hagenberg, Austria: October 11, 2006 — Ergonis Software and Take Control Books today announced a special offer that gives Macintosh users buying a copy of PopChar X 3.0 a 30% discount off Sharon Zardetto Aker's "Take Control of Fonts in Mac OS X" and "Take Control of Font Problems in Mac OS X."

PopChar X 3.0 was completely redesigned earlier this year to make it even easier for Mac users in font-intensive professions to discover and insert special characters into the text of any document, in any application. Notable improvements in PopChar X 3.0 include universal binary support, quick search for special characters, an always-available floating window interface, and an optimized approach for selecting recently used fonts and characters.

Christoph Reichenberger, CEO of Ergonis Software said, "We're pleased to have negotiated this discount on these ebooks about font handling for our PopChar customers. We've been working on font-related utilities for the Mac for many years, and although font handling on the Mac has become significantly more powerful, it has also become hugely more complicated. Since both PopChar and these ebooks are indispensable for anyone who deals with many different fonts, we think this is a great offer."

Take Control publisher Adam Engst commented, "Anyone who has had to fight with fonts under a tight deadline will appreciate the functionality provided by PopChar X 3.0 and the expert knowledge in these Take Control ebooks. Together they'll help anyone who works with fonts to save time, avoid frustration, and work more productively."

The 255-page "Take Control of Fonts in Mac OS X" provides the knowledge that every Mac user working with fonts needs, including the details of Mac OS X's font support; how to use Font Book to manage fonts; ways of dealing with old fonts; and instructions on making the most of special characters in Unicode fonts. Its 120-page companion volume, "Take Control of Font Problems in Mac OS X," focuses on what happens when something related to fonts goes wrong, explaining how to troubleshoot font problems and providing numerous solutions to specific problems.
