Adobe Labs Knowhow


I was teaching a Photoshop course last week and one of the students asked me if Adobe products have a roll-over help feature.  I said no, but I'm glad to find out that I was (mostly) wrong.  Adobe Labs is working on a feature called Knowhow.  It is currently only available in the English version of Illustrator CS3.  What it does is provide single-click contextual help.  Basically you just click on any tool you would like to know more about and it gives you access to not only Adobe help but also community based resources collected through  I think this is a hugely significant step for help menus.  Embracing the help and tutorials created by independent users will give people a reason to use the help menu in a program, instead of just going straight to Google.  (Found through urlgreyhot)
