Scrivener 3.0

I apologize if there is already a forum for this, but I couldn’t find it. Regarding 3.0:

  • When will 3.0 be released?
  • Is there a list of new features (not bug fixes)?



This thread has a long discussion that mostly makes the point that it will be released when it’s ready, and that only a few hints regarding the features are known. Among the things that Keith (the creator and iOS/MacOS developer) is that a full styles system will be implemented for v3, and that something interesting will be done to merge favorites, project notes, and references.


Thanks - I read through the other topic and was hoping with the beta closed that there would be something a bit more definitive by now.

Happy new Year!

I wish you all a successful start into 2017!
I swear “TimjThomas” was not me Thomas. :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: (Just kidding)
I don’t even want to ask and wait in good mood until it’s out and released. :smiley:
The roughly 800 German Scrivener Users in our FB-Group and I can barely wait. :slight_smile:
So … step on the throttle control … :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp:

Friendly greetings,

“Closed beta” means that it is only open to specific people that L&L designate, not that it’s done. An open beta would be where anyone can sign up to participate.

You know what … according to my extra sensory perception … you are one of them. :smiley: :wink: :wink: :wink:

Watch out, Dev! We’re gonna have trouble with this one :unamused: He’s got a sense of humour too :frowning: They’re the worst kind.
Happy New Year Tommy :smiley: :wink:

Happy New Year to you, too. :slight_smile: You music selection is excellent. :smiley:


There are some interesting hints re 3.0 in the podcast linked here:

There were also the two tantalizing screenshots of a new swimlane view for the corkboard.*


  • Feature internal code name ‘floopy’.

Maybe I just read every forum post and pay attention to how companies perform their beta testing so I know when to wait patiently for information. :slight_smile:

Nah. “Eager” is not a problem. “Jerk,” now that’s the problem.

Have I mentioned I’ve been called a jerk once or twice in my life? :slight_smile:

Since English is not my mother tongue I had to check the dictionary for “Jerk”.
I’m somehow irritated about what I have found … :open_mouth: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Just to be clear, the only person I was calling a jerk was myself.

Yes, I have read this, too. Not sure yet what it really means or how it turns out.
Since I am doing all publications of my series via collections, one collection for each novel, print book or collection book, sometimes even different ones per issue (Pending over which sales plattform I’m selling the book), I was always hoping there will be a way one day, to assign and save specific compile settings for a specific collection - including all belonging Meta-Data … This would help me a lot …
