How to add new words/use old .rws file?

Hi there. In older versions, the procedure of adding new words/custom dictionaries was to create a .rws file and point to it in a .multi file.
I have my old additional .rws dictionary and I’d like Scrivener to recognize it in addition to the main dictionary (.dic), but I don’t know how to do it in Scrivener 3.
Can it still be done or the only way to add a list of words at once is by replacing the wordlists.ini?

Scrivener 3 stores the personal word list in a text file that resides under:


and is called Wordslist.ini. With some editor skills you will probably be able to transfer your old word list over there.
