Bug Description

My suggestion is about making a welcome splash screen, as in Corel, InDesign, LibreOffice and others in order that program loads faster and makes user be able to choose what they are going to work with: New project, Last open files, Open existing file, and maybe some other features. In my opinion this should make a user feeling comfortable, but if not, they could tick "Always start with a new document" and they get what they had been used to. Just an idea, hopefully others will relate to it.

Seems to be asking for pretty much the same thing as bug #170247, so closing as duplicate.
