I cannot find the smooth tool for adobe illustrator anywhere.  This happened when I switched to the Adobe CC 2019 and the Mohave update.  Can anyone help me?

Thank you

The Toolbar is editable in Illustrator CC 2019, and the Smooth Tool does not appear in it by default, the Basic setting. You may:

1. Click the Edit Toolbar button (the … at the bottom of the Toolbar), find the Smooth Tool in the revealed list, and drag it to where you want it in the Toolbar.

2. Click the Edit Toolbar button, click the menu bottom in the upper right corner, and click on Advanced. This will put all tools, including the Smooth Tool, into the Toolbar. I believe they are positioned as they are in CC 2018.

When updating your application please read the new features summaries as well as the popups that tell you what's new.

I usually assume these pop-ups are telling what new features have been added, NOT the fact that a very useful tool I've been using for years has been moved to an obscure new location

The Smooth tool has not been moved. It's still in one group with the pencil tool.

It has been moved from where anyone used to earlier versions of Illustrator would expect to find it, or would hope to find it, or would desperately search to find it.  That makes it damn inconvenient.

It's like suddenly hiding the Sword of Athena from the Wonderwomen during her fight. !!!

 Such an important tool moved to an obscure location. 

 

At least you should keep the search help toolbar like Mac for the Windows users of Adobe illustrator. I have been using illustrator for so many years, still, we Windows users don't get all these amenities and we sit each day searching for the required tools throughout the day.
