[prMac.com] Hagenberg, Austria - Ergonis Software today announced the release and immediate availability of PopChar X 5.0, a major new version of its award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters. The new version adds a long-desired feature that allows users to collect frequently used characters in a custom "Favorites" group. Together with the new hotkey feature, this provides fastest possible look-up and insertion of special characters with a single click.
PopChar X 5.0 also contains lots of improvements "under the hood" that lead to much faster display and scrolling of the character table, faster and more reliable reaction after changes to the installed fonts, and improved dynamic updates of special cases for specific applications. A simpler technique and an improved visual representation for the menu attached to the status item and many other minor improvements and fixes make version 5 the best version of PopChar that has been available since its initial release more than 20 years ago.
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.
