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.
