Should I upgrade to V3 for Windows?

I’ve been using Scrivener for writing projects since 2014 and love it! I’m tempted to upgrade to V3, but I’m wondering if there’s a consensus about pros v cons from users of the old version. The cost isn’t my concern - it’s really about the benefits/drawbacks to upgrading. Thanks!

In a word. Upgrade. Huge improvement


Do it. Drawbacks? You have to learn your way around a newer, better program.

I’m on a Mac, so I’ve had v3 for a long time (and love it), but I have friends who use Scrivener on Windows. I keep urging them to upgrade.
