With version 8 on the horizon (see “PopChar X 7.7,” 24 March 2017), Ergonis Software has issued PopChar X 7.7.1 to fix a couple of bugs in the character discovery utility. The update fixes an incorrect display of key combinations for certain characters that can be typed only with “dead keys,” works around an issue that prevented usage of certain keys for the Open/Close hotkey on international keyboards, and resolves a bug that caused PopChar to lock up when searching for certain strings.
