PopChar X Publisher's description

Type special characters without knowing the keyboard combos, explore fonts

If you want to get the most out of your fonts, then PopChar is the right tool for you.

Most of your fonts contain thousands of characters, many more than you can access from the keyboard. PopChar makes "typing" of unusual characters easy without having to remember keyboard combinations.

Whenever you need a special character, PopChar is there to help. Click the "P" in the menu bar to display a table of characters. Select the desired character and it instantly appears in your document. You can also search large fonts for characters by their Unicode names. And if you don't know the name of the character, you usually at least know what the desired character looks like. With PopChar, you can also simply draw the character on the screen and PopChar will find it.

PopChar works with all modern applications that support Unicode. It makes it easy to navigate and search within fonts that contain thousands of characters. Search for characters by their names, find fonts that contain certain characters, explore the character set of fonts, collect your favorite characters, insert HTML symbols. PopChar makes all these font-related tasks easy.

You can even take a new look at fonts from a designer's perspective – get thorough information about your fonts, see a font preview, check out what a given text fragment looks like in a certain font, and print beautiful font sheets.
