PopChar Win 8.5 supports Unicode 12.1 and offers further improvements


Perg, Austria - November 6, 2019: Ergonis Software today released PopChar Win 8.5, an improved version of the company's award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts on Windows.

PopChar Win 8.5 supports Unicode 12.1, the most recent update to the Unicode Standard. Unicode 12.1 adds 555 characters, for a total of 137,929 characters. According to the Unicode Consortium, additions include 4 new scripts, for a total of 150 scripts, as well as 61 new emoji characters. The new Unicode standard has been defined only recently, and fonts that fully support it have yet to be developed, but PopChar Win 8.5 is already prepared for releases of fonts that contain the new characters.

PopChar Win 8.5 now also supports font-specific Unicode descriptions for several symbol fonts, such as FontAwesome and Material Icons. Furthermore, PopChar Win 8.5 includes fixes and workarounds for user-reported issues and is, therefore, a recommended upgrade for all PopChar users. 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.
