What happens to Scrivener when I update my Mac OS?

I’m running Yosemite 10.10.5 on my Mac and I have Scrivener 2.8.1 – I really need to update my Mac’s OS… when I do… what happens to my Scrivener files…?

Scrivener 2 is a 32-bit app. If you upgrade to a modern version of macOS that only runs 64-bit apps, you will need to upgrade from Scrivener 2 to Scrivener 3 (which is a 64-bit app).

Scrivener 3 uses a different file format. Your Scrivener 2 projects will be converted to Scrivener 3 format when they are first opened.

The following guides should help:
