I am working on my first RCP application, I have defined a couple of perspectives and a number of views, it all works well but there are some key visual differences between it and the Eclipse IDE itself.

First, where I have stacked views, the overlapping area is not curved and wide like you see in the Eclipse IDE where view headers overlap. How do I get this Eclipse look?

Secondly, the perspectives bar is located underneath the cool bar instead of to the right of it as in Eclipse. How can I get it to be at the right? It takes up too much real estate as it is now.

Thirdly, only one of my perspectives (the initial one) appears on the perspectives bar. How can I get both to be there the first time the application is run?

Thanks,

-SBS

These can be customized via the values in your plugin-customization.ini
