New improved search and Help (Discover) in Illustrator
Announcing a completely new search and help experience in Illustrator. The new 'Discover' feature allows you to search for help, tools, hands-on tutorials, and articles within the Illustrator app. You can use the Discover panel search bar to access the full repository of tools, in-app tutorials, and articles, to help you build your skills. Search offers auto-complete suggestions including suggested content, tool shortcuts, and quick links. You can invoke help using the search icon on the top right corner or through the Help menu.
We are also bringing New Rich Tool Tips into Illustrator which allow you to quickly learn about a tool. Hovering the mouse over a tool will show an animation explaining the basic workings of the tool.
The feature is complete, but the team would like to hear how it works for you and what would you like to improve.

C'mon. The iOS CC "help->search" tool will freaking show you where the button is.
THAT IS 'POTENTIALLY' THEEEEE COOOLEST INTERFACE-FEATURE EVER.
Windows CC "Help->Search" sends users to the internet.
That's just plain mean. That's Racist! That's a hate crime!
IF Hardware has that level of influence on the performance of your software, that should be BLATANTLY labeled "Batteries not included for Windows users"
The users of your software are not always the ones who choose the hardware. Often, that is beyond control. If apple starts making true 3D animation machines, then the ground would be level.
Until then, please do Windows users a favor. Please share the invisible helper tool which shows the user where the function is.
If 3D animators are using ≥six programs simultaneously (i.e. for 3D), those users are the most-likely to need the feature anyway.
Dear Bill Gates: if that limitation is your fault, Please do the right thing. Our tools could help us learn how to use them.
