All-New PopChar 3 for Windows offers Unprecedented Convenience for the Entry of Special Characters

Hagenberg, Austria: March 28, 2007 - Ergonis Software® today announced the release of PopChar™ Win 3.0, a completely redesigned version of its widely used tool for inserting special characters into the text of any application.

Ergonis took a fresh look at the challenge of inserting special characters into text, from both a user and technology perspective. The result is not just a new version of PopChar. Instead, PopChar 3 has been completely redesigned and rebuilt from ground up. It mixes the well-proven concepts of earlier versions with a good dose of “Ergonis Innovation” to deliver the best PopChar ever!

Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of Ergonis Software, stated, "We have released PopChar 3 for Mac a couple of months ago, and are thrilled with the feedback we have got so far. Today, we are more than happy to offer the improved feature set and elegance of the all-new PopChar 3 to our Windows customers, too." He added, "We've really raised the bar with this release. No other product can compare with PopChar's speed, power and intuitiveness."

PopChar solves a problem faced by every technologist and multi-lingual worker. Inserting special characters into application documents can be frustrating and result in a steady loss of productivity. The extent of the problem is a function of several factors, including the number of special characters in a document, the variability of the characters, and the variability of fonts used in conjunction with the special characters.

The new release of PopChar adds many features to address these problem factors, the most important of them are:

  • Quick Search for Special Characters – The PopChar user interface now contains a quick search area. Entering the name of a character in the quick search area temporarily filters out everything else from the character table. For example, by entering the character "e" into the quick search area, only special characters based on "e" (è. é, ê, ë, …) are displayed in the character table. You just click the desired one to insert it in the document.
  • Optimized Character Selection – The PopChar window now contains an area displaying the most recently used characters, enabling you to insert the most often used characters faster.
  • Optimized Font Selection – The PopChar font menu now contains only the most recently used fonts, enabling you to find the most often used fonts much faster. When you need a font that does not appear in the font menu, you can open PopChar's new font drawer that lists all available fonts.
  • Vista Compatibility – Of course, the new version runs smoothly also on Windows Vista.
