Deactivate Window

Deactivating Windows


If you no longer wish to have Prediction work with a Windows application, you must deactivate the application's window.

To deactivate an application's window, for example a word processor:

1) Open the application you wish Prediction to work with.

2) Open a document, or the dialog box where you want prediction to not work.

3) Make sure the document portion of the application's window is visible.

4) Select Deactivate Window from Prediction's system menu.

5) Click on Yes in the Deactivate Window dialog box.

6) Click on the document. Make sure you click on the document, on the cursor is usually a good spot, not on the scroll bars or window frame. The ZZZZZzzzzzzz. message should immediately appear in the prediction window.

Note: Some applications, like Microsoft Word, need to be clicked twice to deactivate them before the ZZZZZzzzzzzz. message will appear.

Important: If you are having trouble deactivating an application, make sure you click on or near the cursor, because sometimes Windows programs have hidden status windows that you may deactivate by accident. In this case it will appear that Aurora Prediction hasn't deactivated, even though it has - it just hasn't deactivated the window you hoped for.

If your application supports multiple views of a document, ie "Draft", "WYSIWYG", "Preview" you may need to repeat the Deactivate Window procedure for each view.

You may also deactivate windows by deleting their corresponding WATCHn= lines from the [PREDICTION] section of the AURORA.INI file.
