New features

  • Scanning of QR codes is now possible.
  • Improved Italian localization.

Bug fixes

  • Better compatibility with Windows 11.

July 1, 2020 we launch an updated version of the software.

If you order a MagniLink TAB after 2020-07-01, it will automatically be delivered with the new software installed. If you have a MagniLink TAB from before that date and want to update with the new software, this is free of charge. Contact our support at support@lvi.se and we will help you with a new license. 

New features from Juli 1, 2020:

  • You can open captured images and video recordings directly from the software.
  • You can switch between the different cameras during video recording without interrupting the recording. Thus you can record with the external camera and at the same time use the internal camera for reading. 
  • It is possible to set the frequency of the cameras to 50Hz to avoid flicker on the screen from fluorescent lamps.
  • You can now open .pdf documents for OCR processing.
  • You can turn off and turn on column mode for OCR.
  • You can save your images, video recordings and OCR-processed documents directly to your desktop.
  • You can now move around in the text in several different ways even in the OCR mode, for example with your fingers on the touch screen.
  • You can use gestures to enlarge and reduce the size of the menus on the settings page.
  • You can choose your own colour and transparency level of the menu buttons, which now also are larger.
  • You can rotate the camera image, which, for example, allows you to turn the external camera to the left side of the screen. You can also rotate the camera arm so that the camera is positioned between you and the screen, which can make it easier if you have a small workplace.
  • There is a completely new note function which allows you to open or take a picture and make notes, mark, draw, OCR process and make changes to the images in several other ways. Ideal, for example, to fill in forms, take exams, etc.
  • There is support for Windows built-in screen reader, Narrator, so you can get the functions in the menu read aloud.
  • Now there is support for Surface Pen, that you use on the touch screen instead of your fingers.


MagniLink TAB and Windows 11
MagniLink TAB is delivered with a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet with Windows 10 Pro pre-installed.

The TAB is configured and function tested in production using Windows 10 Pro. 

The application in the MagniLink TAB is also compatible with Windows 11 Pro, and we have tested it without finding any major remarks.  

However, any Windows 11 updates could create potential problems. Because of that, be aware of the following:

  • If you update your Microsoft Surface Pro tablet to Windows 11 Pro, LVI cannot take any responsibility around the update or any issues that might occur in relation to this. 
  • If you choose to update to Windows 11 Pro, we recommend that you first create a system restore point in Windows. We further reccomment that you carefully follow all Microsoft recommendations and instructions regarding the updating of  the operating system. 
  • Windows 11 supports 3- and 4-finger gestures, which collides with certain gestures in the MagniLink TAB software. If using Windows 11 we therefore recommend to turn this off in Windows. This is done under Settings/Bluetooth and devices/Gestures.
  • Older versions of Microsoft Surface Pro tablets are not compatible with Windows 11. If you receive a warning that your hardware is non-compatible with Windows 11, you should avoid updating your Surface Pro tablet.
