Bug Description

Judging from a look at the code these modes never were converted to work with the codebase and the mode settings are thus ignored and the "Simple" mode is used at all times.

[Test Case]

1. Open CCSM->Magnifier->General tab
2. Choose any other mode than "Simple"
3. Activate it

Expected Result:

The mode chosen should be used.

Actual Result:

"Simple" mode is always used and user settings are completely ignored.

Actually, no. Still Low importance because Simple mode still works.

Sorry for the noise, but please consider eyefish mode adds a "proximity alert" function to the big squarred simple one... and without this function, for some people, the use of a big squar is too random! Please reconsider increasing importance. Please!
