You will need a program such as ZipIt
to decompress (unzip) the Jig Font file. When you have a program installed to decompress
.zip files, you can click on the Jig Font link and choose to 'Save as..' or 'Open' the file directly.
Save the file onto your computer. You will then need to convert
the font to Mac format. To do this you can use a program such
as ttconverter.hqx. Click here to download
Then, locate the font (e.g. JF_fontname.ttf) and drag
it onto the TTConverter app. This will create a font suitcase.
Move the font suitcase into the Fonts folder inside your System
How To Install Fonts
If you need help installing the font on your computer, you can
visit our Help Section, or view your own
computer's help files.
After installing the font, try reloading the page. Don't see
it? You may need to re-start your computer to activate the font.
If you do, don't forget to bookmark this page first!
Complete The Puzzle
do the complete puzzle, the best thing to do is to open up a
new document in your favourite word processor and change the
font to JF_Liberty.ttf. You may also want to change the size
of the font so that the pieces are easier to see.
Type out the letters from A to Z and a to i.
Then start trying to piece the picture together by cutting
(Ctrl + X) and pasting (Ctrl + V) the characters from your typed
list onto a new line. Cut and Paste can also be selected from
the 'Edit' menu or by right clicking on the piece you want to
Remember that the characters will behave just like any other
font in a word processor - you'll need to press the enter key
to start a new line and if you delete or add a character it will
move other pieces on the same line.
In other words - it's not as easy as it looks!!
