PopChar X 6.1 shows detailed information about your fonts
December 5, 2012 in Utility
[prMac.com] Hagenberg, Austria - Ergonis Software has announced the release of PopChar X 6.1, an improved version of the company's award-winning tool for efficiently dealing with fonts and special characters. PopChar has been at the hands of writers, publishers, and designers for 25 years, helping them to find and type special characters.
With version 6, PopChar has evolved from a plain character picker to a versatile font utility. The new version continues along this path and adds a new Font Info view, which shows detailed font information like version number, properties, supported languages, copyright and license statements, information about the designer, manufacturer, vendor, and more.
In addition, PopChar X 6.1 includes custom tunings for more than 600 fonts, including the BeLight Font Kit and some foreign language fonts. Furthermore, PopChar now remembers the selected font across quit and relaunch, offers improved vertical positioning of certain non-standard fonts, and adds a number of other enhancements.
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.
PopChar X 6.1 requires OS X 10.5.8 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8).
