Best practice to install or update PopChar, KeyCue, and Typinator

Installing for the first time

All our Mac products come with a "smart self installation" technique that makes installing and updating a breeze. Just mount the downloaded disk image and double-click the application icon inside. It will quit an older copy that may be running, copy itself to the Applications folder and launch the newly installed copy. There is no magic involved: You could do all this by hand as well with drag & drop. Double-clicking the application in the disk image just simplifies and automates the process and gets you up and running in seconds.

Updating an existing version

When the built-in update checker tells you that a new version is available, just click the "Download and Install" button. This downloads and launches the installer for the new version. The installer will tell you once more whether the new version requires a newer license.

Alternatively you can also perform the same steps as described above ("Installing for the first time").


You don't need to take extra steps. In fact, we strongly recommend to avoid extra work:

  • Do not quit your old copy, if it is currently running. This is not necessary. When an older copy is already running, this even tells the installer in which location the new version should be installed.
  • Do not move the old version to the trash by hand. This can even cause strange behavior, when you attempt to move an active application to the trash.

CautionIMPORTANT: DO NOT USE application-cleaning tools (such as AppCleaner, AppDelete, AppTrap, AppZapper, CleanApp, CleanMyMac, iTrash, TrashMe, and similar apps) to remove the old application version before installing the new one. These tools erase all application data and preferences. Just update as described above to preserve all your personal settings.
