The paths are in truetype TTF format as well as EPS (encapsulated postscript) format. The set can be installed on the PC (Windows) by placing the TTF into the font panel (found in the control panel - use the search feature of windows to bring up the control panel). You can also use the viewer app by right clicking the TTF and selecting the viewer app to install. For the mac, double click the TTF truetype set and the FB app (or select the open with command) will open and then you can click the install / add button. Once added, you can then validate as well as remove and disable the set as well as the other truetype items in the library. You can also drag the set into the FB app and then that will also install the set. The set can then be accessed via the typeface dropdown of most applications such as CorelDRAW, Photoshop, Affinity Photo, Photo-paint PaintShop Pro etc. The EPS files can be added to any folder and then loaded via the file open command as well as file place command of many apps (not all though) on the pc and mac.
The dash font shapes can be combined with type in numerous ways

Of course, this depends on the app as not all apps have patterns or textures and not all allow for third party resources to be added to their patterns section. You can certainly use them as pattern resources if you are using the artworks in PSP / Photoshop / Illustrator etc. If using Illustrator, you can use them as live type as well as expanded in the swatches. Simply select the type / character or characters and drag them into the swatches panel and then use that with other paths as fills (or strokes). The artwork will still be live so you can double click the swatch icon to edit the pattern in the editor and change the character from 'd' to 'e' say and this will be reflected in any of the artwork using that swatch. If you wish to use in Illustrator as expanded type (not live) then select the required characters / artworks and object menu and expand and then manipulate the vector path in 100s of ways and add to the swatches panel. If you are using them in Photoshop, simply use the type and either delete the background layer and define via the edit menu command (so you can also define them as brushes as well) or you can flatten the layers and select the required area for the swatch and use that with a variety of command such as the edit menu fill and layer styles as well as layer menu fill layer content.
You can fill the dash font shapes with all kinds of colors such as gradients or patterns as well as effects and solid colors
