Text enlargement is not a normally supported feature in Android.

If, after installing and activating IDEAL Text Enlarger on your Android smart device you:

  1. receive the following error message when trying to open an application; or,


The application xxxxx xxxx (process com.xxxxx xxxx) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

Force close


  1. notice an application behaving badly after turning on text enlargement;

It simply means that the application you are trying to launch (or using) is not compatible with IDEAL Text Enlarger®. In such cases you may need to reboot your phone and then disable text enlargement for that application.  You can do so as follows:

  1. Go to your Android home screen;

  2. Press the menu button;

  3. Select "Accessibility;"

  6. Return to your home screen;

  7. Open the text enlarger application;

  8. Select "Per App Settings;"

  9. Uncheck the checkbox in front of the application that proved to be incompatible with text enlarger.

From then on, text enlarger will not be used by the incompatible application and the problem should be resolved.

If you run into the situation of not being able to view the list of application displayed as a result of performing steps 8-9 above, it means that your Android smartphone is not compatible with IDEAL Text Enlarger®.
