PopChar X 9.4 runs natively on Apple Silicon Macs


Perg, Austria - May 18, 2022: Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 9.4, a new version of the company's award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts. The new version now runs natively on Apple Silicon Macs and offers many further enhancements.

PopChar X 9.4 offers full support and compatibility with Apple's newest hardware and software components, Apple Silicon processors and macOS Monterey (12.x). You won't realize any lag when using PopChar X on Macs with Apple Silicon processors, not even when you launch PopChar X the first time. But PopChar X supports not only Apple's latest technologies, it also offers backwards compatibility down to OS X Yosemite (10.10).

Furthermore, PopChar X 9.4 comes with a redesigned rendering technique, which leads to improved speed and consistency between fonts. On supporting keyboards, the F20 function key can be used as PopChar's hotkey. The new version is built with the latest compiler and libraries to make it a first-class citizen on Apple's latest macOS version Monterey (12.x). It also fixes a problem where the "corner P" was partly obscured by the rounded screen corner on MacBooks with a notch.

PopChar solves a problem faced by every technologist and multi-lingual worker. Inserting special characters into 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.
