PopChar 4 – find and insert special characters across font boundaries
Hagenberg, Austria: June 16, 2008 – Ergonis Software today announced the
release of PopChar X 4.0, the award-winning tool for finding and typing
PopChar 4 introduces a new view that allows users to search for special
characters in a new, system-wide way, without being limited to the
characters available in a particular font.
Imagine you want to type the cubic meters symbol, but you don’t know the
keyboard combination, much less you know what font contains the required
symbol. Up to now you would have to search all your installed fonts one by
one. With PopChar 4 you just type “cub m” in the search field and switch to
the new “All” view. If any of your installed fonts contains the cubic
meters symbol, PopChar will show it to you, and will allow you to insert it
into your document with a single click. You don’t even have to know which
font the symbol comes from.
“PopChar has been helping Mac users for more than 20 years to make best use
of their installed fonts. With the power of Unicode fonts and today’s
support of Unicode in most applications, the utilization of Unicode should
no longer be a matter of specialists,” said Christoph Reichenberger,
founder and CEO of Ergonis Software. “PopChar’s new system-wide font view
lets you make use of the full power of Unicode fonts in a simple, Mac-like
way and emphasizes again that PopChar is the number-one utility when it
comes to dealing with fonts and special characters”.
The new version also adds other features like a new command for copying the
selected character’s Unicode name, support for Unicode 5.1, improved
Leopard appearance, and more. Visit Ergonis Software’s website at

enhancements contained in this release and to download a trial copy.
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 you
no longer need to search for and remember keystrokes. Just pop up the
PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character appears in
your current document right away.
