Hi, i am trying to design my own Intro page more or less like Overview one.
Problem is that I am not able to get the result of two items on the left
and other items on the right.
Taking a look at Eclipse Intro page I just see:

<!-- panes -->
<group id="top-left" computed="true"/>
<group id="top-right" computed="true"/>
<group id="content-divider" filteredFrom="swt"/>
<group id="bottom-left" computed="true"/>
<group id="bottom-right" computed="true"/>

Any help?

Thanks in advance,

Chemi.

There are a couple of tools you can use to debug intro. If you download
one of the milestone builds from Eclipse 3.5 you can take advantage of a
new feature for debugging intro.

If you open Eclipse, create a new Launch configuration for Eclipse
(Run/Run Configurations) and in the tracing tab of the Run
Configurations set tracing on for org.eclipse.ui.intro and check the box
debug/toolbar. This will among other things add new buttons to the intro
toolbar which enable you to show the html for the intro page in an
external browser. If that browser if Firefox with Firebug installed you
can inspect the html and see what formatting applies to it. Most likely
you need to create a css file to lay out the page and use the style
attribute on your page to get it to lay out correctly.
