If you want to get the most out of your fonts, then PopChar is the right tool for you. Most of your fonts contain thousands of characters, many more than you can access from the keyboard. PopChar makes "typing" of unusual characters easy without having to remember keyboard combinations. Whenever you need a special character, PopChar is there to help. Click the "P" in the menu bar to display a table of characters. Select the desired character and it instantly appears in your document.
PopChar works with all modern applications that support Unicode. It makes it easy to navigate and search within fonts that contain thousands of characters.
