Welcome page

This view-component is an introduction for the first-time users. It describes what they can expect from the tool.

Requirement

  1. By default, the welcome view-component should be displayed to the user everytime the software is started.

  2. If the user ticks the check-box Do not show again, the welcome view-component should not appear to the user during any subsequent launch of the tool.

Rendering of the view-component

This view-component could be either a popup on top of the landing-view, widget in the landing view or a view on its own.

The welcome message should be centered and not contain very long text, but rather bullet points with links to more detailed documentation. The video should be placed on the top left of the view-component and start automatically without the sound.

Below the welcome message the hyperlinks could be listed and centered.

The Do not show again check-box can be displayed on the bottom of the view-component (bottom-left?) with larger fontsize such that the user cannot miss it. It should be unticked by default.
