TTF In Microsoft Word
As with all applications, Microsoft Word has changed its interface multiple times. The typeface dropdown for the paths is located (in my version) in the Home panel on the top bar of the application. Select the name and then add the shapes via the keyboard as you would in Adobe PS, PSP etc Select the font size as well. You can apply a number of effects such as bevels, shadows, glows, rotations, 3-D effects, outlines, reflections etc as well as changing the color and more. Position the paths anywhere in the document using text boxes. Or use the wordart option.
EPS in Microsoft Word
You can import EPS dinosaur shapes using the insert command photo and picture from file option. Once the artwork has been imported into the application, the image can be moved and effects can be applied such as bevels, glows, reflections, shadows, 3D, rotation and more.
The EPS decorative vectors are still vector graphics so can be re-sized to fill the entire document. You can use the recolor command to change the color from black to green or violet etc You can also apply corrections to the paths to increase or decrease the brightness etc. You can modify the art further via the format command and picture.
Installing dinosaur fonts on PC
The file set is the TTF format and to install, simply drag the TTF into the font section in the control panel. In earlier versions of Windows, you could also add the set via the menu commands in the control panel.
Installing dinosaur fonts / shapes on MAC
Right click the TTF and select the fontbook application and then click the install command to add the set for use in your favourite application.
Use of Dinosaur EPS shapes in Adobe PS
You can open the EPS decorative graphics via the open command as well as the place command. Open the EPS file via the open command and Photoshop will ask for the rasterization of the file and setting of the dimensions and DPI, personally I prefer the place option.
