    We’re crafting a purely UWP experience, which means following UWP design guidelines. We hate to disappoint, but it’s unlikely that we’ll be moving in the direction of including a top menu bar any time soon, as UWP removes the top menu bar entirely, pushing file operations into the hamburger menu and object commands into the property inspector and the context menu.

    I'm so baffled by the insistance that this is a Windows thing. The Snip Tool in windows has a top menu. Windows Explorer has a top menu. The Alarm app has a top menu. Microsoft Edge has a top menu - which is more than I can say for my other browsers. Paint 3D has a top menu - albiet a different one.

    I just updated to windows 10 and these are all programs that came with it, except for my chat program.

    How can it be that you're designing for windows when any number of windows programs have a top menu?

    And even if you were going to insist on this fastfood menu scheme - why won't you include the same content in that menu that mac users are getting from their top menus?

    It feels like some mac-fanboy decided he could make us switch by cutting us off from Xd features, but you have to know that people will just switch their software - especially when the program in question is new and entirely optional (though neat, if it weren't for this absurd issue I would really be enjoying it).

    Is this really where Adobe wants to draw a line in the sand?
