PopChar X 6.4 - leaner, faster, and smoother on OS X Mavericks

Hagenberg, Austria: December 10, 2013 - Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 6.4, a maintenance release of the company's award-winning tool for efficiently exploring fonts as well as finding and inserting special characters.

PopChar X 6.4 improves compatibility with OS X Mavericks and incorporates many enhancements, which make PopChar X leaner andĀ faster. Among the improvements are a faster display of the character table, reduced background activity, improved performance of application monitoring tasks, faster startup, reduced memory footprint, and more. On Mavericks, the "corner P" now appears on the active screen on multi-monitor configurations and PopChar now shows a more precise message when it needs accessibility permissions. The new version also offers improved compatibility with QuarkXPress, comes with an improved installer, and adds many other enhancements.

"Creating great software is not just a matter of great ideas; it also means much work on invisible things behind the scenes. We at Ergonis Software are proud to say that we pay extra attention to all those little details that make our products easy to use. And many such details now contribute to the new PopChar X 6.4 and make it smoother than ever," said Günther Blaschek, CTO of Ergonis Software.

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. Starting with PopChar 6, you can even take a new look at fonts from a designer's perspective – see a font preview, check out what a given text fragment looks like in a certain font, and print beautiful font sheets.

Availability and Ordering

PopChar X 6.4 requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Mavericks (10.9).

PopChar X can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website. The upgrade to PopChar 6.4 is free for anyone who owns a valid license for PopChar X 6. Upgrade paths are available for owners of older licenses. See the company's web site for information about purchases, including enterprise licenses, volume discounts, and upgrade pricing offers.

Instead of purchasing PopChar separately, customers can save money by ordering the Ergonis Productivity Bundle, which also includes the text expander Typinator and the keyboard shortcut helper KeyCue.
