Ergonis Software has rolled out PopChar X 8.6, an update of the company’s tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts.

PopChar X simplifies the typing of unusual characters without having to remember keyboard combinations. Version 8.6 offers the option to define the desired number of lines in the section of recently used characters. PopChar now also supports font-specific Unicode descriptions for several symbol fonts, such as FontAwesome, Material Icons, Webdings, Wingdings, and more, and informs about the total number of available Unicode characters in the About window.

PopChar X 8.8 requires macOS 10.6 or later. It can be purchased at the Ergonis Software website for $29.99 for an individual license and $49.99 for a family license (up to five Macs). The upgrade to PopChar X 8.6 is free for anyone who purchased a license for PopChar X 8.0 or for PopChar X 7.x on or after Sept. 1, 2016. Upgrade paths are available for owners of older licenses.
