PopChar X 4.3

Ergonis Software has published a maintenance update to PopChar X, the long-standing tool for finding and inserting special characters anywhere you can type text. The latest version improves Snow Leopard compatibility, adds support for font collections in Mac OS X’s font panel and Font Book, adds Unicode 5.2 support, adds a Check for Updates menu item, improves the installation and update process, and enhances the Clipboard save and restore processes. Also, a handful of bugs have been fixed, including one that caused invalid Clipboard contents to lead to a higher CPU load, one that prevented default buttons in sheets from being highlighted, one that caused bookmarks to be created
for every piece of copied text when working with Microsoft Word, and several known memory leaks. Full release notes are available on Ergonis Software’s Web site. (€29.99 new, free update for purchases made in the last 2 years, 1.8 MB)
