Cross compatibility of Scrivener 3 on Windows and Mac

Now that Scrivener 3 has been released on Windows, I’m wondering how feasible/advisable it is to have projects that are shared between them? I do most of my work on my Windows desktop, and the extra screen space is extremely valuable when I’m organising/tagging projects, but I also have a macbook that I prefer if I’m going to be focused on writing one thing for a long time.

If I were to update my old windows Scrivener 1 projects to Scrivener 3, and then store them on a cloud service like dropbox, would I be able to then access and edit them on my Mac, or are the two not compatible to that degree? And assuming that they are, would I be risking data corruption by setting things up that way?

My Windows-using collaborator and Mac-user me have been doing precisely this ever since the Windows Scriv 3 betas were stable in mid 2018. The few problems we have had were all down to not allowing sync to fully complete.
