UI Preferences

NOTE:If you change this setting after configuring a session, the appearance of that session may be unpredictable.

User interface mode

Ribbon is the default UI for InfoConnect. It provides a user experience similar to the most recent Office applications, including features such as ToolTips and Ribbon galleries.

When using the Ribbon, you can have more than one document open in the same workspace. Tabs allow you to see which documents are open, and to change between documents.

Classic MDI provides the familiar menu and toolbar interface. When using the Classic MDI interface, only one document can be open in a workspace, and other features may not be available.


Browser provides a "minimalist" look and feel that is similar to the latest Web browsers. Multiple documents are displayed in tabs.


TouchUX provides a touchscreen user experience. (You can run InfoConnect natively on Microsoft Windows 8 devices. For iOS or Android devices, you must access InfoConnect through a Citrix XenApp server, with the Citrix Receiver client software installed on the device. InfoConnect only supports versions of Citrix software that Citrix currently supports.)

Look and Feel / Color scheme

Select the base color for the application and Ribbon background. The color scheme does not affect your host screen, only the frame around it. To change the colors of the host screen, choose a different theme.


When the Ribbon mode is selected, you can configure your workspace with two different types of "look and feel" settings that provide different ways to access the Workspace Menu The Workspace menu contains layout options, application and document settings, and a list of recent documents. It is accessed by clicking the File menu (when using the ribbon user interface). .


When TouchUX mode is selected, you can choose an operating system look and feel (iOS, Android, or Windows). This look and feel changes only the colors and style of the display. It does not affect functionality.
