Version 3.5 (WinX)

IC Attention.pngThere are breaking XAML template changes in this version. If you use any customized XAMLs from older versions, they should be updated according to these instructions.

Initial Release

New features

  • It is now possible to configure complex parameter lists for various commands in XAML, using the new KeyValueList element
  • It is now possible to use AR-Markers for device pose estimation.
  • Administrators can now configure the fit modes which determines how documents are initially displayed.
  • You can now find comments on various type list members in the developer mode. This is an ongoing process and more comments will be added/improved after the release.


  • The Camera Access was refactored to provide a proper basis for upcoming features.
  • The Rendering Environment was refactored to provide a proper basis for upcoming features.
  • The problematic CollectionToViewConverter for content filtering is replaced by the new ListCollectionView. See XAML Changes in UBIK WinX 3.5 for details.
  • Users can now confirm and save their signature before the timer ends.
  • The OK button will now stay disabled if there is no signature.
  • Improved the way navigation history is maintained so that issues such as wrong navigation destinations upon leaving unsaved changes no longer occur.
  • The string criteria of offline queries are now more restrictive (all sub strings must be found instead of just one).
  • Greatly improved the app's performance when loading PDF files with many pages. You might want to check this out as well.
  • Scanning is now paused when the last search result dialog is still open for user interaction.
  • Comma and dot are both accepted as decimal seperators when entering numbers, independent of the current culture.


  • Fixed an issue where POIs were only rendered in the upper half of the POIPage.
  • Fixed an issue where OCR Shapes were rotated in the wrong direction.
  • Fixed an issue where Child Informations were not shown in the POIFlyout of the Map Page.
  • Fixed an issue where AR Settings were not applied when returning from the Settings to the POI Page.
  • Fixed an issue where browsing through local content can be difficult (the content is shown after a substantial delay) when downloading large branches.
  • Fixed an issue where branch download is sometimes interrupted by too many file downloading failures.
  • Fixed an issue where file downloading events are sometimes not logged.
  • Fixed an issue where the compass needle in the POI Page was not updated properly.
  • Fixed an issue where POI Icons in the Map Page changed upon selection.
  • Fixed an issue where the distance on the POI Flyout was always zero for Geometries.
  • Fixed an issue where the POI Flyout Selection was reversed after exiting buildings.
  • Fixed an issue where POI poses were not updated once the Building Level or POI Groups changed.
  • Fixed an issue where the HideOtherPOIs and ScreenOffset Settings had no effect on POI Rendering.
  • Fixed an issue where POIs were rendered upside down when having a negative ScaleX property.
  • Fixed an issue where POIs in the Map and POI Page were not updated once infrastructure objects were loaded.
  • Fixed an issue where the Geo Editor TeachIn ignored manual positions.
  • Fixed an issue where AR-Marker POIs were blinking when they should have been behind the camera.
  • Fixed an issue where POIs were visible in the upper left corner of the POI Page if the near and far clipping plane were too close.
  • Fixed an issue where camera flash toggle button was not updated when changing the camera.
  • Fixed an issue where editor showed wrong content when Not Applicable was checked.
  • Fixed an issue where the POI Page was not properly restored after UBIK was minimized.
  • Fixed an issue where it was not possible to return to Scan Page after scanning AR-Markers.
  • Fixed an issue where the RFID(NFC) Scanner did not show a dialog window with more objects (when tag has targets two objects or more)
  • Invalid characters in profile names are escaped/replaced and will no longer break the app.
  • Fixed several UI issues in the Gantt chart control. For example, no longer displaying the current date line or the progress bar if it doesn't fall into the project timeline.
  • Fixed an issue where the content page displays incorrect title/subtitle right after editing a Guid property using a query.
  • Fixed an issue where the user can only browse to the same object once by scanning the QR code (unless a different marker is scanned).
  • Fixed an issue where the "Manual" sync mode configured in profiles is ignored during logins.
  • Fixed an issue where the toggling of fit-to-width mode for documents doesn't work (when Windows animation is enabled).
  • Fixed an issue where the device position calculated from AR-Markers was wrong.
  • Fixed an issue where POIs having a negative AR-Marker side length were not shown.

Known issues

  • Project specific resources defined in UBIKThemes might not take effect immediately after switching profiles. Restarting the app solves the problem.
  • If a device has multiple cameras of exactly the same model (e.g. Microsoft HD 3000), the wrong one might be used during remote support calls.
  • When using the UBIK contrast profile for OCR scanning, the app might crash especially if other marker scanning is also turned on.

IC Hint square.pngThere are still XAML errors that cannot be caught, such as referencing a StaticResource that doesn't exist - in such a case, the App will crash, but it will still write the full exception message to [AppInstallPath]\LocalState\UBIKDebug.log before termination, thus the corrupted line can again be easily identified!
