PopChar X 5.2

by Lex Friedman

Many of us know how to type a few special characters on our Macs, but who among us can claim to know how to type all of them? Thanks to Ergonis’s release of PopChar X 5.2 [1], typing special characters is now a bit easier. New in this edition of PopChar is a font size slider, which makes it easier to adjust the window’s display — whether you’d prefer to see more characters at once, or finer detail for fewer characters. Even better, PopChar X 5.2 includes built-in hints for more than 70 fonts, so the slider is automatically adjusted for optimal display whenever possible. The new version also improves background memory usage, and resolves issues with Sigil, FocusWriter, TeXworks, and FileMaker Pro. (€29.99 new, free update, 2.3 MB)
