Analysis for Office - Default the Task Pane to display on open

After reading through SCN there are undocumented commands to show/hide the task pane Analysis, Component and Information tabs. There does not appear to be a way to toggle the whole task pane off/on. What we would like to do is make the Task Pane visible by default and not requiring the user to go to the Analysis tab and select display in the design panel buttons each time the workbook is open. Is there are setting that can be applied or macro created? We are using AFO v1.4.8 and Excel 2010. Thanks for you help.

    Researching the SAP Help at help.sap.com/boao it looks like this is not currently possible in 1.4

    Looks like in the Admin Guide for 2.1 this may be possible https://websmp204.sap-ag.de/~sapidb/012002523100014781502015E/21_2_aaoffice_admin_en.pdf (page 28) - note SMP logon is required

    Is there a chance you could try this with 2.1 on a machine to see if it meets your needs?

      Thanks Tammy. If the DescriptionTaskPaneDockPosition= 1 makes the windows appear when setting this might meet the need when we upgrade. It might take me a little bit of time to free up a machine to put v2.1 on it and ensure connections ok to test. Thanks for your suggestion, ideally it would be nice if there was something in 1.4.8...
