[prMac.com] Hagenberg, Austria - PopChar X 3.4 offers new search feature for unknown special characters. Ergonis Software today announced the release of PopChar X 3.4, the popular tool for finding and typing special characters.

The new version offers an enhanced search feature that lets you easily find special characters by name, Unicode number, or by example. A new context menu supports copying selected characters to the clipboard in various formats. Finally, the new release offers an automatic update checking system and improves compatibility with Leopard and popular applications like InDesign, Illustrator, and Excel.

"If you are dealing with texts containing foreign characters you often come across characters you haven't seen before. You don't know their name, their Unicode number, and particularly not how to type them on your keyboard," said Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of Ergonis Software. "Now all you have to do is to copy the characters in question and paste them into PopChar's search field. PopChar will instantly show you all the information about these characters, including how to type them on your keyboard, if at all possible".

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.
