Can I Update to Scrivner 3.0 from 1.9.16?

I received a message/email (I forget) that said I could update to 3.o for free because I had an old enough copy of Scrivner. I don’t see any easy way to do so now that the idea seems alright. How would I go about ‘doing’ so?

You simply install version 3, input your upgrade license (you’ll need to find the instructions on how to get your v3 license first), and then use File->Open to open your old projects. It will rename your old project (to add “Backup” to its name), and then convert a copy of that project for version 3.
