Ultra Character Map

2.1
10 January 2019

Access any character or glyph in any font.

Overview

Ultra Character Map lets you access any character or glyph in any font and use it in other apps. It also lets you do side-by-side font comparisons, print font catalogs, view detailed character and font information (including the keystroke combinations that produce special or accented characters), and much more.

Features
  • Unlock everything your fonts have to offer. Access any character, symbol, or glyph in any font and use it in your documents.
  • Say it in Emoji. Ultra Character Map gives you access to all Emoji characters available in OS X. To use an Emoji character, just drag or copy it into your document.
  • Compare fonts the easy way. Enter text once, then simply scroll through a list to see a preview in every font. Don't want to look at all your fonts? You can filter the list by style, classification, collection, or name. Ultra Character Map lets you preview header or paragraph text and includes preset samples to save you even more time.
  • Rediscover your fonts. Looking for a handwritten font? Or maybe for some decorative fonts to spice up your design? Ultra Character Map can use your fonts' information to show you specific types of fonts, so you can quickly find what you're looking for.
  • Print font catalogs and font samples. Ultra Character Map lets you print custom font catalogs, font samples, and character maps, or save them as PDF documents.
  • Useful tools for graphic designers, webmasters and app developers. Ultra Character Map shows all the glyphs in your fonts (even glyphs that are not associated with a character) and lets you view Bézier curves and copy them to other apps. It also features an HTML entity palette, a Unicode 6.1 grid and panels that display extensive character and font information.
  • But wait, there's more. Ultra Character Map lets you pick favorite fonts and characters, view characters or text copied from other apps, view the keystrokes that produce specific characters (even if they require multiple steps, such as "Option-N then Shift-N"), and much more.

There isn't a demo for this app and that's a pity because it's actually a good app. I bought it out of desperation when Apple killed the Character Viewer's "Glyph View" in Lion, so I had to run Windows XP with Parallels Desktop just to work with the standard Windows character map app. Anyway, I found this app here does the job well, not much more but nothing less. Both regarding price and quality/UI I do recommend it over PopChar X. The developer is very responsive and it get's updated frequently. Worth its price. However, a shame that now we have to use third party software for this. There are many people using a Mac in science, etc. who needed Glyph View to use their custom made, field specific, fonts with characters that are not there in Unicode (yes, there are characters that are not included – yet – in Unicode).

This app has all the characters I could possibly need. It is easy to use and navigate. It works well with a clipboard manager such as Copyless 2.

Does anyone know if this application supports non-Latin fonts such as Arabic, Persian, or Hebrew? Thanks.

How is this app feature-wise compared to the overly expensive PopChar X? Thanks!

I was looking for some intermediate app between font management and text processors, part for fun, part for work (proofreader / layouter né multi-language linguist). It fills some gaps I was aware of and some others – e.g. quick comparison of fonts side by side. As an example, I'm looking for fonts which are legible in some specific areas, e.g. a lower single quote for ‚Deutscher Text‘ distinguished from comma, or a nice set of dashes. Frankly, the outline mode showing defining points and tangents is good enough a reason to get it. Major obstacle: no demo.
