I am a new user to Scrivener, using the beta 3.0 HiDPI release, but this question applies to all releases: why does Scrivener start with a list of project templates and make you use a menu/button to get to a recent project? Don’t people spend more time on a current project than in starting a new one? The startup screen choices seem backwards to me. I would expect to see current and recent projects prominently listed, and templates readily available but not the primary display.
Maybe the opening screen should be tabbed so that current and recent projects show on one tab and templates on another.
