PopChar X 7.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Ergonis Software has released PopChar X 7.1 [1] with extended support for emoji characters. When an emoji character is not available in the current font, it’s now shown in the Apple Color Emoji font to avoid empty cells in the PopChar table. PopChar also shows the names of the emoji skin tone characters. The character discovery utility quickens startup speed, works around a bug in FileMaker that prevented certain characters from being inserted, resolves a problem that caused the character table to scroll to an unexpected offset after a font change, fixes a confusing message when a new version is available, and improves how registration information is displayed. If you haven’t yet upgraded to version 7, upgrades are priced at €14.99 for a single-user license and €22.99 for a family pack. (€29.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members [2], free update, 3.8 MB, release notes [3], 10.6+)
