PopChar X 9 - font and character info in all new ways


Perg, Austria - December 2, 2020: Ergonis Software today announced PopChar X 9.0, a major new release of the company's award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts.

PopChar X 9 brings cool new features to explore information about characters of a font from different perspectives. A new Character Info window shows information about the character’s Unicode encoding as well as typographic properties. New in PopChar X 9 is also the option to assign custom names to characters and use these names for finding characters afterwards.

Another great new feature is the Fonts tab, which shows a list of all fonts that contain the selected character. This is a quick way to compare what the same character looks like in different fonts.

PopChar X 9 also supports Unicode 13 and comes with a built-in layout for Emoji 13.0 that offers easy access to all emoji characters as defined in the newest standard. New on board is also a new built-in layout for the symbols in the “San Francisco” fonts.

Needless to say that PopChar 9 is compatible with Apple's latest macOS Big Sur (11.0). It contains numerous adaptions and modifications behind the scenes to make PopChar a first-class citizen on Big Sur.

With all that, further new features as well as improved usability and convenience, PopChar X 9 is the best PopChar ever and 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.
