Tethered View in ZoomText and Fusion


Tethered View is a new feature available in ZoomText and Fusion. When using higher zoom levels (magnification), there is often an activity that occurs on the screen that is outside of the magnified viewing area. This is where Tethered View is helpful. It opens a new window inside the magnified area that brings the activity into view. Tethered View currently supports the Windows Start menu search, Excel formula bar, Word Comments pane, and links list on a web page (Fusion only). It is enabled by default for these items.
To toggle Tethered View on and off, or change settings, do the following:


1. In the ZoomText or Fusion Magnifier toolbar tab, select the Window button.
2. Choose Tethered View.
3. Choose Enable or Disable to toggle Tethered View on and off.

Choose Settings to customize Tethered View settings as desired.


Windows Start Menu Search and Tethered View


When you use the search box in the Windows Start menu, you may notice that you cannot see the top search result in the magnified view. With Tethered View enabled, the best match appears in a window next to the search box. You can click the result or move through the list to see other items.
The following keystrokes are available when using Tethered View with the Windows Start menu:


• Expand or collapse Tethered View window: CAPS LOCK+T
• View the result at the top of the search list: CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+T

Excel Formula Bar and Tethered View


In Excel, a similar scenario occurs when working with formulas. Excel displays the formula related to a cell in the formula bar located at the top of the worksheet. This position is far away from the actual cell. The Tethered View brings the formula to you and displays it next to the cell that has focus. If you want to switch to the formula field, you can click it or use the CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+T keystroke.
Other times you may want to read the Excel spreadsheet without the formula displayed. In this case, you can toggle the Tethered View with CAPS LOCK+T.
The following keystrokes are available when using Tethered View with Excel:


• Expand or collapse Tethered View window: CAPS LOCK+T
• View the Formula bar: CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+T

Microsoft Word Comments and Tethered View


If you distribute a Word document for review, others may add comments to the document. The Comments pane or list is positioned to the far right side of the screen. In Tethered View, each comment is placed next to the text where it is inserted. This eliminates the need to move across the screen, find and read the comment, and then return to the text.
The following keystrokes are available when using Tethered View with Word:


• Expand or collapse Tethered View window: CAPS LOCK+T
• View the comment: CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+T
• Return to the text at the insertion point: ESC

Fusion Links List and Tethered View


When reading a web page while running Fusion, you can press INSERT+F7 to display a list of links that are on the page. With Tethered View, as you move through the list, the current link’s URL appears next to the item in the list. You can click or press ENTER to select the link.
The following keystrokes are available when using Tethered View with the Fusion links list:


• Expand or collapse Tethered View window: CAPS LOCK+T
• View the URL for the link: CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+T
• Open the links list: INSERT+F7
