PopChar X 6.1

Ergonis Software has brought a sprinkling of new features to the font discovery utility PopChar X 6.1, including a new Font Info view that displays details such as version number, supported language, number of characters and glyphs, copyright, info about the designer, and more. The update also provides custom tuning for more than 600 fonts (including the BeLight Font Kit and some foreign language fonts), which also includes tuning to fix the vertical positioning of certain non-standard fonts. Additionally, PopChar X now remembers selected fonts after quitting or relaunching, and it initiates background version checks only when your Mac has been idle for some time.
