When carrying out all kinds of text editing work, you may need to input some unfamiliar, special characters (letters or symbols), but don’t know how to do that. In this case, using the Windows’ built-in Character Map seems to be the only way you can think of. But actually there is a better third-party solution, it is PopChar for both Windows and Mac platforms.

PopChar is a very practical special characters fast inputting tool from Austria. It enables user to easily and quickly query and insert a variety of special characters (such as Unicode characters, HTML characters) into any editable text, without having to remember their complicated key combinations. It can easily navigate and search fonts containing thousands of characters. This includes: search characters by names; find the fonts containing specific character; browse the character set of font; collect your favorite characters; insert the HTML symbols, etc. All in all, PopChar can help you make the most out of your fonts collection, and recognize, display and use the characters inside.

So, from now on, whenever you want to enter a special character, but don’t know how to type it out, just simply click on the icon in PopChar’s interface, then the corresponding character will appear in any modern applications that support Unicode. In addition, PopChar also allows to map the special characters to keyboard keys – i.e.: mapping the characters that are hard to type out onto some unused keys on your keyboard, for easy output.
