They are in TTF for use on the PC and MAC. On the PC, drag the TTF file to the control panel on the PC (this can be found via the search feature in Windows 10 as well as 8.1 8 etc) or via the start menu in earlier versions of Windows. Once loaded into the control panel, the set is then available for use in a variety of apps such as PSP, Word, Photoshop etc. On the PC, You can also right click the TTF and select the open or open with (depends on the file assocations) and you should be able to see the viewer app. You can then click the install option or print (have to say, a fairly limited command set). You will have to enter your admin account details. On the MAC, double click the TTF file or right click the file and select the open command or open with. You will then see the FB app (found in the applications folder of MAC OS X) and click the install button. The set is then added to the user (if that is the preference set in the preferences section) or you can add it to the computer section which will require the admin account details. If you have set the correct preference for user (or computer, if admin enabled) then you can also select TTF files from a folder and drag them into the FB app and they will be instantly validated. You can drag one or multiple files which makes it fairly quick if you have a load of packs to load all at once. Of course, you can also then go into the app and disable or remove them as required (personally, the disable option is better as it means you don't have to re-load them at some future date). There are also a number of excellent apps out there that can be used to control and manipulate all the TTF etc files.

You can take any of the artwork layers and duplicate and rotate them and combine them in 100s of new combinations such as the cris cros design above made up of two curved line layers in black
You can add masks via the layer mask feature in apps such as Photoshop. You can use the masks to remove or add to the artwork
You can combine them with all kinds of other paths such as stars in red as a backdrop
The set also includes the files in EPS as well as TTF. The one thing about the EPS, you don't need to load them from a particular folder. It is probably best to add the EPS files to a user account folder (unless you want to access them in a multi user environment or from a network). Perhaps the documents folder ? or as in my case, a Projects folder. You can then load them into Photoshop, PSP etc via the open and / or place command. You can also add them into the CC library and that will make it a lot easier to access the set at any point instead of having to search for the file set

You can add layer effects etc to the halftone dot shapes in a variety of applications such as Photoshop
You can add the type artworks via the keyboard by using the type tool, add the characters by typing A B C etc on the keyboard - you are supplied with a PDF document that gives a complete display of all the characters included and which keyboard characters they relate to. Of course, it is even easier if all the artworks are displayed in front of you and that is where the glyph panel comes in as you can quickly see all the artworks and scroll back and forth as well as re-size the vectors via the glyph panel. To display the glyph panel, go to the type panel and then panels and glyphs. Use by selecting the type tool and adding a text selection to the document and then set the color as well as typeface and size and then double click the glyph cell. You can repeat this as many times as you wish (it is a pity there is no feature to add 1000s of characters in one go by the side menu)
