I just found out that the Windows 10 app is missing quite a few features than the Mac version - which is the version shown in tutorials. This is very confusing indeed.
Does XD for Windows offer the same features as the Mac version?
At this time, no. The first release of XD for Windows includes core design and prototyping features, and will be updated every month with additional features. Eventually the core feature set across both Windows and Mac versions of Adobe XD will be consistent, with each version being optimized for performance and stability.
For a detailed list of the features supported in Windows, see Features currently supported on Windows 10.
Thanks for the interest in using XD for Windows! Some of the Mac version features are not yet available on XD for Windows , but we will be adding them with each subsequent monthly release.
However, most of the features from the upper menu (File, Edit, Object, etc), on Windows version can be found under the upper-left area hamburger menu or in the contextual menu. We had a different approach here, as the Windows version is an Universal Windows Application and we aligned with the platform's design language and guidelines.
If you're not finding a particular feature there, please let us know.
I find one missing on Windows 10. For example -> Object -> Mask with Shape... Only works with keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+M) but there is no such action link in the main menu or in the context menu. My release is Version: 0.6.16.7 Beta(downloaded via CCM on 27 feb 2017)
Mask with Shape is not officially supported in Windows yet, so use the shortcut key at your own risk If you're interested in seeing the full context menu support, please upvote this story in UserVoice: [Windows] Mask with shape – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs
