Is it possible to import my personal word list from Scrivener 1?

I just upgraded to Scrivener 3 (and omg, I love the new design!) and would like to know if it’s possible to import my personal word list from Scrivener 1? As there are a lot of words Scrivener doesn’t know (at least in German) and it would be cool if I hadn’t to add them all manually again.
Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the forum, and thank you for using Scrivener!

Scrivener 1’s word list is in: C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Scrivener\Scrivener\wordlists.ini

Please note: The AppData folder is hidden so select the ‘Hidden Items’ box in the File Explorer ‘View’ tab so you can see it.

The Scrivener 3 word list is located in:

Your word lists will open in NotePad, and you can copy the words from the v1 list into the v3 list. Each new word should be separated by a comma and a space.

Restart Scrivener 3 (if it’s open) and now your words will be included in the word list. You can check by looking in File > Options > Corrections > Spelling and click the ‘View Personal Word List’ button.

You might also find the Upgrade Guide, which will walk you through some of the key changes in Scrivener 3.


Thank you so much! That worked!
