From Ergonis software:
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. Search for characters by their names, find fonts that contain certain characters, explore the character set of fonts, collect your favorite characters, insert HTML symbols. PopChar makes all these font-related tasks easy. You can even take a new look at fonts from a designer's perspective - see font previews, check out what a given text fragment looks like in a certain font, and much more.
What's new in this version:
- New Font Info view shows detailed information about the selected font.
- New context menu item "Copy Font List" for copying the list of font names to the clipboard.
- PopChar now supports Unicode 6.3.
- Version info in About dialog now clearly indicates whether 32 or 64 bit version is running
- See the product page for further details.

"Best way to insert special chars into doc, text, email."
Version: PopChar Win 5.5.2
1) provides a larger selection of characters than the Win 7 character map. And, it is easier to insert characters.
2) Keeps collection of frequently used and favorite characters.
3) Able to search for characters by name.
4) Able to insert characters into places where CharMap doesn't always work, like the subject line of an email.
Not much, although sometimes the choice of characters is overwhelming. That's where favorites and most recently used come in handy.
I have been using this product for over 6 years, and probably other than my browser (Firefox), it is my most frequently used piece of software that is not operating system related. I use it to personalize email subject lines for easy identification by my friends and colleagues (so they know it's NOT SPAM). I also use it on email text and my Office documents to enhance the reading. The company is excellent at providing answers to questions you may have, so add in fantastic tech support to a great product. And for those cynics reading this, my only connection with this company is as a customer, no other connection of any type.
Version: PopChar Win 5.4
I have used this wonderful program for many years. It has consistently saved me much effort and time and proved to be indispensable. I wish all software was as well designed and stable as PopChar for Windows. Outstanding customer and technical support as well.
I have yet to encounter any problems or shortcomings.
The latest version (5.4) continues to add functionality and ease of use. I could not be more pleased. A+++
