that lets you insert special characters, accented and foreign
letters etc. from all installed fonts into your documents.
PopChar allows you to insert special characters, foreign letters and more. You never need to search for or remember complex keystrokes again! Just pop up the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character is inserted into your current document.
