PopChar celebrates 15th anniversary on Windows with version 8.4 and huge discounts


Perg, Austria - February 26, 2019: PopChar Win, the company's award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts on Windows, celebrates its 15th anniversary with the release of version 8.4 and with a time-limited half-price offer.

The first version of PopChar was released back in 1987 as a tool for finding and inserting special characters running on the then "Classic mac OS". When Apple introduced Mac OS X, PopChar was redesigned from scratch and released as PopChar X in May 2002. The success of PopChar X and many customer requests finally lead to the decision to offer a Windows version as well. In February 2004, the long-awaited Windows version of PopChar became available. Since then, PopChar Win is evolving in parallel with PopChar X and is today the leading tool for exploring fonts as well as for finding and inserting special characters on Macs and on Windows.

"We are happy and grateful about the long-lasting world-wide success of PopChar and to celebrate the 15th anniversary of its Windows version today," said Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of Ergonis Software. "We invite all font and Unicode enthusiasts and everyone who has to deal with special characters to celebrate with us and to get PopChar at 50 % off."

In celebration of this anniversary, customers can save 50% off the regular price when ordering a license for PopChar (PopChar X for macOS and PopChar Win for Windows alike) before the end of March 2019. To get the discount, enter the coupon code "PopCharWin15" during the checkout process at Ergonis' online store https://store.ergonis.com. The coupon code is good for all PopChar (Mac and Win) purchases at the Ergonis online store except upgrades and site licenses.

PopChar Win 8.4 offers a couple of smart improvements, which enhance the current version 8 and make PopChar even more convenient to use. One of these improvements is the option to use the mousewheel for increasing/decreasing the character size. The new version also offers a new mechanism for alternative names in the Unicode standard and comes with font-specific Unicode descriptions for several fonts. Visit Ergonis Software's website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download the new version.

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.

PopChar Win 8.4 runs on XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10. PopChar X 8.5 runs on Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) up to macOS Mojave (10.14).
