Turn off annoying "Catch up with what's new in illustrator" popup
EVERY time I load Illustrator, the stupid, pointless, broken "Catch up with what's new in illustrator" popup appears. I have the options of:
'Remind Later' which means this thing will appear the next time I load the app
'OK' which opens the 'Learn' panel, which contains...nothing.
So both options are equally ****. Which is exactly what we'd expect from this dreadful application that people only use because it's the "industry standard" since Adobe illegally killed off FreeHand many years ago. When will Affinity Designer become the industry standard? Very soon, I hope.
Oh look my software is now completely useless and unusable because the text inside the box is gone and I can't remove the box. Need to click something behind the blue box? Sucks! How much do I pay per month for this **** again?
Please fix this! It's so annoying!!
Seriously gets in the way of working. Thanks. The fact that im making the effort to send this proves my point of how obnoxious these new "help tuts" pop ups are. Please stop this invasive UX/UI
In the irritating mean time, I open the pop up and move it off screen so just the edge of it exists out of the way and leave it there. The next time I open Illustrator and click on what's new, it pops up out of the way and doesn't ask you again while it's open. Not a real fix but improves sanity levels.

This is a serious issue that really hurts my workflow. I might try and cancel my Adobe Creative Cloud if these annoying issues aren't resolved. I cannot believe that this once prestigious company is now spamming me with these pop ups. This company has really fallen.
PLEASE PLEASE allow me to PERMANENTLY turn off the "Get started with fun and interactive tutorials" pop up!! I am limited to "remind me later" and "OK". Where is DISABLE?

@Eric - you're funny! Of course you won't see any updates on this yet - it hasn't even been a decade since I first added the suggestion - nothing ever happens for at least a couple of years in Adobe's Illustrator department! 🤣
Yes, please fix. I've seen no updates on this.
Adobe just needs to fix this. How about turning it off...that's real easy. Then give us an option to turn it back on. Not on by default, just eliminate it from your next update and give an option to turn it on if we want it.
How many people would opt for that?
That Illustrator, and Adobe CC as a whole, assumes ALL its users are imbeciles and that none of us are seasoned veterans who go back to a time WAY before some of these programs were even Adobe products is WAY beyond annoying. As if it is our fault they update their programs fifty times per week and assume every update is a new/fresh install for a customer who has never used their software.
This is driving me batty! It needs to be fixed. Adobe doesn't seem to realize that people use this software for WORK. We don't want these needless distractions. If I wanted to "catch up with what is new in Illustrator" I would seek that out.

Agreed this is incredibly annoying. Any updates?
