    Scrivener 3 for macOS is out

    • Just released. The details page is here.
    • $25.00 for existing customers who are upgrading; $45.00 for new customers. There's a free 30 day trial.
    • You can email Literature and Latte your App store receipt if you want a coupon to upgrade at the $25.00 price.
    • Scrivener 3 for macOS 10.12 or later; that means Sierra or later.
    • The updated Windows version is coming; but if you buy the Windows version now, you'll have a free upgrade when it's released.
    • If you're a NaNoWriMo winner, you'll be able to use your Scrivener discount offer.

    I am dying to try this, but I am nervous about doing it right in the middle of a draft!
    December goals:

    1. WIP outline/integration of notes
    2. Revise first 1/3 of WIP
    3. At least 2 blog posts
    4. Progress on side projects
    5. Other WIP, if applicable

    FWIW I upgraded a 2013 MBP last week and I haven't noticed any issues. That said, I haven't noticed any differences either, so YMMV.

    It'll be there later, and you can wait for the kinks to be worked out; I'm waiting.

    There's a Take Control of Scrivener 3 book out today as well (that's an AW affiliate link).

    MacOS 10.12 is Sierra. High Sierra is 10.13. If you already have Sierra, no need to rush out and upgrade it just for Scrivener.

    If you already have Scrivener 1 or 2, be aware that Scrivener 3 uses a new file format and is NOT BACKWARD COMPATIBLE. Once you've opened a Scrivener file in 3, you can no longer use it in older versions.

    What this means for me: One of the machines I use for writing (my beloved MacBook Air!) is old and feeble by modern standards and will never get an OS newer than Yosemite. That means it's never going to get Scrivener 3 either. So as long as I continue to use that machine for writing my main system isn't getting Scrivener 3 either. Though it looks awfully spiffy.

    There's a Save As Scrivener 2 option. It seems two work fine for exporting to Scrivener 2 for macOS or Windows.

    Just upgraded. So far so good! Except the progress bar no longer changes color and I'm BUMMED. I really liked changing the bar to green. It was a great incentive for my brain!

    On the other hand, I can see the progress in the title bar on the page, so there is that.

    Belay that! I figured out how to make it change colors again. There's an appearance preference for target progress bars. And you can pick your colors!

    But even more importantly... Scrivener 3 closes a quote after an em-dash properly!

    Okay, now I have to upgrade.

    Of course I've grown so used to fixing this as I type that I'm going to screw it up for at least a week.

    I can recommend this book: Take Control of Scrivener 3.

    That's an AW affiliate link. And so is this link for buying Scrivener 3.
