[prMac.com] Perg, Austria - Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 7.4, an improved version of the company's award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts.
PopChar X 7.4 adds support for the flags available in the Apple Color Emoji font, which have been added in Yosemite 10.10.3. These flags are not individual characters - they are created by combining "regional indicator symbols", and you would have to know them for entering a particular flag by hand. With PopChar, you do not need to know country codes or be aware of the technical foundation of the flag symbols. Just look at the "Color Flags" section of Apple Color Emoji and click one of the flags to insert it in your current document. And even better, you can simply search for the country names. For example, you can enter "Bahamas" in PopChar's search field to insert the flag of Bahamas, without the need to know that the country code is "BS".
In addition to that, PopChar 7.4 also comes with fine-tuned metrics adjustments for certain fonts, in particular some handwriting fonts. Furthermore, an improved clipboard-based insertion technique leads to more robust and efficient insertion of special characters in a broad range of third-party applications.
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.
PopChar X 7.4 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer and is compatible with OS X El Capitan (10.11).
