In an RCP app, is there any way to configure the Welcome view so that it
is NOT initially maximized when the app is started the first time on a
new workspace? We'd like it to be visible, but not maximized and instead
visible in a specific location that we specify in the plugin.xml

TIA,
Eric

I talked with Eric Moffat of the Platform UI team and he came up with
the following solution:

Add this code:

@Override
public void openIntro() {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
super.openIntro();
IIntroManager introManager =
getWindowConfigurer().getWorkbenchConfigurer().getWorkbench( ).getIntroManager();
introManager.setIntroStandby(introManager.getIntro(), true);
}


To ApplicationWorkbenchWindowAdvisor

Let me know if this works
