Product Announcements – Ergonis Software of Perg, Austria has released PopChar X 8.2, an improved version of the company’s award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts. With this new release, Ergonis made a great job in enhancing and refining the recently released version 8 of PopChar X.
One of the outstanding new features of PopChar 8 is doubtlessly the possibility to create custom layouts and link fonts to preferred layouts. This allows you to design tailored layouts for particular workflow situations, which leads to even quicker access of frequently needed special characters.
PopChar 8.2 extends the notation options for custom layouts. It is now possible to add a bunch of characters with just one smart directive in the layout description. You can, for example, add all characters from a named Unicode block, or all characters that match a certain search string.
In addition to that, PopChar X 8.2 offers some fixes and workarounds for user-reported issues. Visit Ergonis Software’s website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download the new version.
For topical reasons, Ergonis Software is pleased to announce that PopChar X 8.2 is fully compatible with macOS High Sierra, which has been released by Apple just a few days 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.
System Requirements: PopChar X 8.2 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer and is compatible with macOS High Sierra (10.13).
PopChar X can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website. The upgrade to PopChar X 8.2 is free for anyone who purchased a license for PopChar X 8 or for PopChar X 7 on or after September 1st 2016. Upgrade paths are available for owners of older licenses. For information about purchases, including enterprise licenses, volume discounts, and upgrade pricing offers, see the company’s web site.
