Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 7.1, an improved version of the company’s award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts.
PopChar X 7.0 introduced the new shape finder, which lets you find special characters simply by drawing their shape. In the meanwhile, users and reviewers alike have already praised the shape finder as the best feature ever since the first release of PopChar nearly 30 years ago.
Version 7.1 offers extended support for the emoji characters, which are so popular today. When an emoji character is not available in the current font, it is now shown in the Apple Color Emoji font, which avoids empty cells in the PopChar table. Also, PopChar now shows the names of the Emoji skin tone characters.
The new version also highly improves the convenience of getting informed about and installing new versions. When a new version is available, you can now check the new features and enhancements before downloading the new version. The built-in installer has been adapted to new functions and appearance of Yosemite and helps with purchasing and updating licenses when the current license does not cover the new version.
PopChar X 7.1 finally adds many further improvements and enhancements that improve overall stability and compatibility with Yosemite and third-party applications like Filemaker. Visit www.ergonis.com to learn more about the changes 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, 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. Starting with PopChar 7, you can even find special characters by simply drawing them.
