PopChar is a utility application that lets you insert special characters, accented and foreign letters, etc., into your documents. No need to search for and remember keyboard combinations. Just pop up the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character appears in your current document.
If a font contains Unicode characters, you can see all of them, neatly arranged in the standard Unicode categories.
You can use the character table of PopChar X like a menu or make it "sticky" to insert multiple characters in a row. PopChar X also allows you to select the font and size of the characters to be inserted.
