Unobtrusive and user-friendly application made to help your insert unusual characters, HTML special characters and characters from Unicode fonts into your documents
Working with all sorts of special characters can be a time consuming and tiresome task, especially if you have to remember numerous keyboard combinations. Thanks to PopChar, you no longer have to waste time searching for the needed character.
PopChar is a light, low-key and very easy-to-use macOS application that provides quick and easy access to all characters of all fonts, including those that cannot be accessed directly from the keyboard. PopChar is designed to run in the background and wait for your to summon it.
To access PopChar’s main window you just have to click on the status bar icon, which can be placed in the right or left corner of the menu bar or alongside other status bar icons.
You can use PopChar with all modern apps that support Unicode and insert the desired character with just a click of a mouse button.
Comprehensive list of characters
From PopChar’s main window you can effortlessly browse through the entire list of fonts, adjust the font size and use the magnifying tool to have a better look at the desired character.
What is more, the built-in search form can speed up your search process and help you find characters in a font by their name.
With PopChar’s help you can also find fonts that contain specific characters, browse the character set of fonts, insert HMTL symbols and collect your favorite characters. Designers will be pleased to know that they can preview their text and characters using sample text even before inserting them into their project.
Three different character insertion modes
The bottom toolbar allows you to choose between three insertion modes. Hence, you can choose to insert a character as plain text, formatted text or HTML.
By accessing the Preferences slide sheet, you can adjust the character size, customize the HTML insertion mode and change the location of the status bar icon.
