PopChar X 8.6 improves user experience and is now notarized by Apple


Perg, Austria - March 19, 2019: Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 8.6, an improved version of the company's award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts.

The new version 8.6 offers a couple of smart user interface improvements, which make PopChar even more convenient to use. One of these improvements is the option to define the desired number of lines in the section of recently used characters. PopChar now also supports font-specific Unicode descriptions for several symbol fonts, such as FontAwesome, Material Icons, Webdings, Wingdings, and more, and informs about the total number of available Unicode characters in the About window.

PopChar X 8.6 has been notarized by Apple. This means that the software has been uploaded to Apple before distribution, and Apple has confirmed that all executables are signed correctly and that the app does not contain any malware. This is a security feature that all Ergonis products now carry.

Finally, PopChar X 8.6 contains fixes and workarounds for user-reported issues and improves overall compatibility and stability on all versions of macOS. 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.

Availability and Ordering

PopChar X 8.6 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer and is recommended for macOS Mojave (10.14).
