I think it is pretty standard procedure to include some sort of starting view in Revit projects that tell users about the project.
Because of this, I also think most people immediately open the view they want, effectively by-passing the start up view.
Here is a way to maybe get them to look at something in the start up view.
In the image above I created a new text type and named it "WINGDINGHAND". I set the font to Wingdings, and the size to 1/2". Then I just typed the letter "F". which is this hand pointing.
Now you really have noticed my important note.
There are a ton of fonts that included more subtle and less subtle objects. Just set one up and make a note that includes the alphabet. Find something you like, and count it off to know what letter of the alphabet it is.
Thanks to Brandon Hanna for this sweet tip.
