Will the advanced courses work if I use Circuit Studio instead of Altium Designer?

Is there anything specific in the Advanced HW Design and Advanced PCB Layout courses that will just not work if I use Circuit Studio? Here is a comparison of features. Are there any features in Altium Designer that are required by the courses but not available in Circuit Studio?

By the way, I came here after hearing your interview on Amp Hour

Hello @robertbaruch. Some people use our courses with Circuit Studio. However, you will need to find out some things by yourself (e.g. the interface looks different). Also, the examples & activities are prepared in Altium Designer.

I do have CircuitStudio installed, but I do not use it, so I am not sure what exactly will be missing. In the courses, I try to use basic features, as the course is mostly about hardware design, but Altium itself has some really good features which are presented in the lessons (e.g. importing parameters from suppliers - I am not sure if this is available in CS)
