PopChar X 7.4

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Ergonis Software has issued PopChar X 7.4 [1] with support for displaying all the color flags that are available in Apple Color Emoji. You can also search for country names (rather than use combinations of so-called “regional indicator symbols,” such as “CK” for the Cook Islands flag), and this functionality requires OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite or later (with an extended flag set available in 10.11 El Capitan).

The character discovery utility also improves metrics adjustments for certain fonts (such as handwriting fonts), fixes a a minor cosmetic issue with the group pop-up button on Retina displays, and improves the app’s clipboard-based insertion technique.
