Ergonis Software has released PopChar X 6.3, adding a clickable link to the Font Info view that opens the font’s storage location. If you have multiple versions of a font on your system, the font discovery utility will now tell you which version is currently in use. The update also improves the way PopChar X handles transient clipboard contents for better compatibility with clipboard utilities, enhances the reaction speed and reliability when available fonts are changed, and fixes a bug that blocked certain menus after clicking the menu bar icon. Ergonis has also made a few user interface tweaks, enabling you to dismiss the PopChar X window with the Escape key, ensuring the assigned hotkey correctly closes the window, and fixing the window position when the window header is offscreen after the app is first opened.

Extract Directly from Time Machine
Normally you use Time Machine to restore lost data in a file like this: within the Time Machine interface, you go back to the time the file was not yet messed up, and you restore it to replace the file you have now.
You can also elect to keep both, but the restored file takes the name and place of the current one. So, if you have made changes since the backup took place that you would like to keep, they are lost, or you have to mess around a bit to merge changes, rename files, and trash the unwanted one.
As an alternative, you can browse the Time Machine backup volume directly in the Finder like any normal disk, navigate through the chronological backup hierarchy, and find the file which contains the lost content.
Once you've found it, you can open it and the current version of the file side-by-side, and copy information from Time Machine's version of the file into the current one, without losing any content you put in it since the backup was made.
