Please give users the option to shut off these 'Tour' animated tooltips/pop-ups in the preferences -- it's really frustrating when I'm just trying to get work done.
It's understandable that you are trying to show new features. But Illustrator, like many of the other CC apps, is a *professional-grade* design application. A large chunk of your paying customers are experienced users that use these apps for production work.
When I open Illustrator, 95% of the time I'm working on tasks so I can meet a deadline. I'm all in favor of learning about new features, but I'll go back and try them out when I have time to do so.
(Microsoft used to do this nonsense years ago with 'Clippy' ...that animated paper clip that would pop up in Microsoft Office products to 'help' users. Even Microsoft figured out that 'Clippy' wasn't such a hot idea. Come on, Adobe! I expect a little more from you.)
