This app gives you access to all the characters in a font by Unicode pages (there are over 300 of them) which encompass foreign languages and their extensions, symbols and pictograms, emojis, dingbats, all accents and accented characters, antique and modern script.

Characters show in a size that is comfortable to see correctly how a character looks, and you can pick any font of the system to see how that will look.

Click on a character, and it is copied to the clipboard, together with the font style, to paste in applications that support fonts. In text only apps, only the character will be pasted.

Unlike the basic emojis & symbols option of the Edit menu, Char Menu is available for all applications, like for instance Photoshop.

Also, you know exactly which font is used, instead of having small characters show only by topic.

Char Menu appears and disappears with Ctrl-Option, making it ready at any time.

To have it loaded with the system, simply right click on its icon in the dock, and select "Open at login".

Sounds Good in the Description, but Poorly Implemented

Poorly implemented. Font menu freezes halfway down when scrolling; can’t enter first few letters of the font’s names, so scrolling is mandatory; I have hundreds of fonts, so this is a big, time-consuming problem. Also, if you don’t hit the fonts menu with just the correct length left-click, nothing happens. Can’t enter letter I'm looking for (e.g., "B”), although there’s a box for me to do so. Alphabet style sections are continuous in the display, so when scrolling, I go from one style to the next without even knowing it (e.g., “Layout Controls” scrolls directly into the “Lepcha” foreign language). Font names & alphabet styles are cramped & poorly spaced. App menu can't be enlarged on screen, & can be positioned only at the 4 screen corners, not where I want it to be. Link provided by the developer in the "About" window leads to a "404" error ("The resource requested could not be found on this server!"). Discarded. Save your money & look elsewhere.
