If a toolbar has been docked on the Windows Desktop, the magnification may not track or follow the cursor when typing in documents and other edit boxes


Turning off the Desktop toolbar will allow Supernova to track the cursor whilst typing.

To do this:

1. RIGHT CLICK on a blank area of the Windows Taskbar.
2. Choose "Toolbars" 
3. In the submenu unselect "Desktop". The Desktop toolbar will be turned off and magnification should track the cursor again.
