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.
