How do I ensure ZoomText®'s magnification service turns off upon exiting ZoomText?

This article applies to:

ZoomText 11.x Magnifier, Magnifier/Reader and Fusion

MAGic® 14.x

Windows® 10

 

PROBLEM:

The "AiSquared Magnification" service, as seen in Windows Task Manager,  continues to run after ZoomText exits.  This is to ensure that ZoomText starts smoothly when opening it again.  But this may create issues with other applications.  As an example, after ZoomText is closed and Freedom Scientific's MAGic is started, MAGic’s text smoothing will not function.  This results in blurry, pixelated text. The problem can be resolved by changing the following option so that ZoomText’s magnification service stops every time ZoomText exits.

 SOLUTION:

  1. Open the ZoomText user interface (CAPS LOCK+CTRL+U).
  2. Open the ZoomText menu (ALT+Z).
  3. Navigate to Preferences > Program.
  4. Under “Exit Settings”, place a checkmark in “Unload magnification process when exiting ZoomText”.
  5. Select OK.

Don’t’ forget to save this setting change as follows:

  1. Open the ZoomText user interface (CAPS LOCK+CTRL+U).
  2. Open the ZoomText menu (ALT+Z).
  3. Select Configurations > Save As Default.
