Before and after
A text document with joins may look strange. But it’s fine when you’ve got it in the right typeface.

The top document shows text ready for joining. The middle document has the same text with added joins. The bottom document shows the model typeface with joined letters.

This is simple and quick. What can possibly go wrong?

Mistake
Result: jumbled Chinese?
If this happens on your Macintosh, you probably forgot to save your text as sixteen bit Unicode. Here’s how to do it right.

Got your text, joins and all? Now copy and paste it where you want it.

Maybe you prefer to import the new document? If your word processor asks about the format the new document, select 16 bit Unicode (big endian).

That’s it: you’re done.
