How to use the user character sharing function
Applicable for the operating system in which the program pack had been installed.
The same self-made (common) character set is to be installed by the authorities or enterprises that use “the program pack of the full repertoire” to avoid self-created “same characters with different codes” phenomenon due to their downloading fonts from the full repertoire of CNS 11643 website.
1. Central control the self-made characters：
In order to maintain the consistency of self-made characters and code points (same character with same code), please designate a special person or authority to handle the self-made characters used by internal computers; when the need for character creation, users do not need to create their own characters. Instead, make an application of adding new character to the manager.
2. Manager creates the internal common used character set：
Managers need to install the program pack of the full repertoire of CNS 11643 on their own computers, and then query and download desired Chinese characters from the full repertoire due to create a common internal self-made character set. The character set is placed in the C:\CNSFonts folder.
3. Open the internal common used character set：
The manager sets the C:\CNSFonts folder on his computer to be “resource sharing”.
4. End user install the internal common used character set：
Internal network users create C:\CNSFonts folder on their own computer, and then open the manager's computer C:\CNSFonts folder through “network neighborhood”. Then copy all files under manager’s folder to the C:\CNSFonts folder of their own computer, and then run the setup.reg under C:\CNSFonts and re-login the computer to use the common character set.
If the user's computer is not connected to the internal network (such as a branch office or home), the administrator will compress the C:\CNSFonts folder into a single file and send it to the user by e-mail. User receives the file and decompress it, and then perform the above steps.
