Have you ever had to regularly use special characters or fonts on your keyboard? PopChar is a clever utility that lets you insert special characters, accented letters, umlauts, etc. simply by using the installed fonts into your system.

All you need to do it activate the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character appears in your current document. It works in a similar way to the Special Characters option in Microsoft Word except it's much more accessible and comprehensive.

PopChar can automatically detect the font that you are using so that the characters won't look out of place. You can insert HTML symbols, see your most recently used characters and configure Popchar to automatically start at login. The only downside is that this demo version only gives you access to a small number of characters - you'll have to buy the full license to see and use the rest.

PopChar is a powerful and easy to use tool that makes entering unusual characters a breeze.

PopChar is an invaluable utility application that lets you insert special characters, accented and foreign letters etc. from all installed fonts into your documents. You never need to search for or remember complex keystrokes again! Just pop up the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character is inserted into your current document. PopChar Win is the Windows sibling of the famous PopChar utility, which has been available on the Macintosh for many years. Now you can enjoy the ease of use of these award-wining Macintosh utilities on the Windows platforms. If a font contains Unicode characters, you can check "Unicode" in the Settings menu to see all of them, neatly arranged in the standard Unicode categories. Features: simple to use, click and select, inserts accented characters, foreign letters and any other characters from all installed fonts, full Unicode support, inserts HTML symbols, remembers and highlights the most recently selected characters, exclude common characters (letters, digits and accents), inserts characters in "styled" or "unstyled" mode, displays the keystrokes needed to create selected characters, hot key activation, automatically starts at login and more.
