PopChar X 6.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

Ergonis Software has released PopChar 6.0, a major update to the font utility that brings a streamlined user interface. The new Font Preview feature displays a few representative characters and a selectable sample text in multiple font sizes, while the new Sample Text feature displays what the font looks like when applied to typical text fragments. Additionally, it gives you the capability to customize your own sample text in various sizes, and you can print font sheets from both Font Preview and Sample Text. The new release also includes support for Unicode 6.1, starts up more quickly with less background activity, detects the current font in Adobe Illustrator versions CS3 through CS6, and adds new keyboard shortcuts for switching the current view.

A few days later, Ergonis released a free update to version 6.0.1. with a fix for a text layout problem in Mountain Lion’s Print Preview, and with improved handling of the Start at Login setting in cases where PopChar had been renamed. PopChar X 6.0.1 requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard or later. (€29.99 new, €15 upgrade, 3.2 MB, release notes)
