"Best way to insert special chars into doc, text, email."

July 08, 2013  |  By ibmtico

 |  Version: PopChar 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.

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+++
