PopChar 5.0 Portable | 2 MB
Tired of searching and remembering keyboard combinations for umlauts and other special characters? Do you know anyone with a name that contains special characters or umlauts? Perhaps you have a sister-in-law who's called Helene? Or a colleague whose name is Bergstrom, and who insists that the dots above the o can't be ignored? If you've ever had to type their names, you'll know how tedious it can be to type these umlauts and special characters.
Fortunately, there is a solution for this kind of problem: PopChar - the user-friendly character map. It is easy to use and even easier to access, because this character map sits quietly in your user tray. PopChar makes "typing" of unusual characters easy without having to remember keyboard combinations. Whenever you need a special character, it is there - no matter what application you're currently using. Click the "P" in the menu bar to display a table of characters. Select the desired character and it instantly appears in your document.
