Creative Cloud Learn’s Enhanced Search Pilot

Find the right tutorial. Faster.

Search_1

We’ve got almost 1,000 Creative Cloud app tutorials. Until now, they’ve been difficult to find. This summer, the Learn team built a completely new tutorial search experience to help you get what you need faster. Today we’re excited to announce a complete redesign of tutorial search.

Search that’s easy to get to from every tutorial page

Our search results have been totally redesigned to help you decide which tutorial works the best for you. On the results page you’ll find a whole new look.

Each search result includes:

  • Tutorial description
  • Tutorial type (video, text, hands-on, game)
  • Duration (length of the tutorial or time to complete a hands-on project)
  • Apps covered
  • User level

Search_2

There are also new filters to refine searches:

  • App search defaults. Based on the product page you came from; apps can be added, changed, or removed.
  • New features. Looking for recent app changes? Filter for the latest updates.
  • Level. Look for tutorials that match your experience.

What if you can’t find what you’re looking for?

Don’t despair. This new search index only includes the tutorials. We’ve got thousands of help and troubleshooting articles in our main search index. If tutorials aren’t the Learn/Help content you’re looking for, there’s always the ability to access global search from the main Learn & Support page.

We plan to expand this new experience in the future to include all Learn & Support content. In the meantime, let us know what you like, what you don’t like, and what you think.

    1,000 tutorials! My gosh, I don’t have time to watch all that. I wouldn’t be able to sleep, eat or bath. Fortunately, I specialize in InDesign. I can watch those.

    Lack of time also why I’ve not signed up for the tutorials at Lynda.com and related sites, as great as they are. I don’t need unlimited access. I need access to InDesign training. Everything is overkill.

    Adobe might consider working out single-app memberships with Lynda. For an additional fee onto our CC membership, we’d get access to all the training in the app of our choice. Keep the fee down, but require a minimum of six months of membership. I like ID, but I suspect there’s a far larger number of Photoshop users that’d love such a plan.

      There’s about 100 InDesign tutorials on the Adobe website. As they mostly last about 4-6 minutes, you dip in and out without a big time commitment. Explore them from here: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/tutorials.html

      Note there are three tabs on this page:
      * Get Started–just a few basics
      * Learn Essentials–essential tasks for new users
      * Key Techniques–more advanced topics

    How do I get to this search page? I can’t find it anywhere either on my PC or my iPad? Many thanks.
