HOW TO INSTALL FONTS ON A MAC RUNNING ADOBE® INDESIGN®

The Herff Jones Fonts are located in the Fonts folder on the Software DVD.

We are continually updating our font collection to ensure compatibility with the latest software. To be sure that you are working with the most recent font version, it is important to remove any previous versions of the Herff Jones fonts before you install new fonts. Herff Jones fonts all begin with “AHJ.” This should help you identify which fonts are part of the Herff Jones collection.
When the Technology Installer on the Software DVD is run, a Yearbook folder is automatically created on the hard drive inside the Herff Jones folder. Inside the Yearbook folder, a Fonts folder is also automatically created to hold all of the Herff Jones fonts, AHJ Sans and AHJ Times are copied into this folder by the installer. Copy the fonts you want to use from the Fonts folder on the Software DVD into the Fonts folder.
