Upgrading to Scrivener 3 on a new MacBook

I’ve been using Scrivener 2 on an old MacBook that doesn’t have room for upgrades. I’m getting a MacBook Air with M1 chip and planning to upgrade to Scrivener 3. Will I be able to open Scrivener 2 projects with Scrivener 3 on my new MacBook or do I need to upgrade before transferring them? Thank you.

Yes, Scrivener 3 can open your Scrivener 2 projects. Please make sure you’ve transferred everything successfully before disposing of the old computer.

If you haven’t already, I’d recommend taking a look at our upgrade guide for Scrivener 2 users, as Scrivener 3 has some very significant changes. You can find it here:
