I dig the site refresh but it’s left me a bit confused. Is Windows 3 version finally ready ? I have a license from the previous version 1. ?-something - can i just update or do i need to pay a fee. It’s no longer installed - as i switched to using the windows 3 betas - Help signposting appreciated -
Hi @twinkerzzz - yes it is!
Whats the payment situation - as i have a license for version 1 already - do i get a discount or can i update stright into v3 ?
Scrivener 3 is available now for Windows. For more information, please visit the features page. To buy, click “Buy Now”.
If you own Scrivener 1 for Windows, you are eligible for an upgrade discount.
If you purchased Scrivener 1 on or after 20th November 2017, you can update to Scrivener 3 for free.
If you purchased Scrivener 1 before that date, you can update to Scrivener 3 with a 49% discount.
Do i need to uninstall the last windows 3 beta version i have installed before i install the ready-to-use version ?
Yes, you should uninstall it before installing v3.0.
It would have been best to export your preferences first, but since the beta expired long ago you can’t launch it now.
- how do i save preference file for my settings in v3 ?
- Launch a project in Scrivener
- File > Options > Manage > Save Options to file. This saves your current Scrivener options to a file, which you can then restore from in the event of a reinstall or migration to a new PC or whatever.
- To restore your saved options, do File > Options > Manage > Restore Options from file.
If you want to transfer your beta options to v3, I don’t think this process will help you now, because you won’t be able to launch the expired beta.
