Search for Characters Outside Active Fonts with PopChar X 4.2

Ergonis’ PopChar X 4.2 is a utility that helps you find characters in fonts and insert them into your documents. The new version lets you search for fonts that contain a specific character, or “reverse font search,” so you can easily find characters that aren’t available in the currently active font. 

You can also search by name for a character (for example, cubic meter), and find those characters by letting you copy a character’s Unicode name. Their website has an informative video showing Popchar’s features.

Popchar costs €29.99 for Mac or Windows, but upgrades are free for anyone who purchased PopChar in the last two years.
