PopChar XOverview

PopChar X helps you get the most out of your font collection.

With its crystal-clear interface, PopChar X provides a frustration-free way to access any font's special characters.

Expanded accessibility

Your Mac includes over 700 fonts, each of which contains thousands of characters -- Why not make them as accessible as possible? PopChar X makes it happen.

Interface advantages

PopChar X displays easy-to-analyze tables of characters, giving you an ultra-convenient interface. You can't access most of these characters from your keyboard -- PopChar X puts them within your reach.

Liberating compatibility

No matter what app you are using, PopChar X brings snappy simplicity to all font-related tasks. Whether you're working with a word processor or a Web browser, PopChar X integrates seamlessly.

Smarter searching

PopChar X's seasoned search capabilities will help you find what you are looking for, whether you need to search for a character by name, identify fonts that contain specific characters, or explore the entire character set of a font.


  • Support for Unicode 8.0.
  • PopChar is prepared for El Capitan (solves a problem that resulted in empty character tables).
  • PopChar now includes searchable descriptions and Mandarin pronunciations of Chinese characters, according to the Unicode standard.
  • PopChar now shows a small keyboard symbol next to the keyboard combination for the selected character.
  • Loading of character names when the PopChar window opens is now about 6 times faster.
  • Produces fewer console log messages when searching for shapes and importing favorite characters.
  • The character description at the bottom of the table consists of up to two lines for longer descriptions.
  • Works around a situation in which a new version could not be installed because an active older version would not quit.
  • Fixes a problem that caused the "Mark Fonts Containing…" command to fail for characters outside the first Unicode plane.
  • Works around a cosmetic issue with vertical offsets of characters from different fonts.
  • More robust handling of font families with inaccessible font members (which also solves a problem with fallback fonts on El Capitan).
  • Fine-tuned size adjustments for more than 20 fonts, in particular many fonts for Arabic.
  • Works around a problem in MS Word 2016 that caused the creation of bookmarks around copied text fragments.
  • Works around an issue that caused PopChar to become unresponsive when FreeHand was the current application.
  • Fixes an insertion problem in CorelDRAW.
