Fonts For PDF Drills

Download the self-extract file (Tgeqa .exe) into a temp directory on your computer. Go to that directory, double click on Tgeqa .exe. This will create files with .ttf extension. Copy these files to your fonts. This is usually under c:\windows\fonts.  You need to restart you computer for this to take effect.        Download Now.


 

For directions about how to use Scientific Viewer to open and access files over the web, please follow these steps very carefully:
 

1.      Note that a .tex file can only be viewed with Scientific Viewer or Notebook or other TEX capable software.  But it definitely can not be viewed with an HTML browser like I Explorer or Netscape. So please never attempt to left click on these kinds of files while in an HTML browser.

2.      While in the regular HTML browser, right click your mouse on the link, choose Copy Link Location or Copy Shortcut.

3.      Open Scientific Viewer or Scientific Notebook. Click on File and on Open Location. Right click your mouse in the open location dialogue box and paste.  Click on Open.
