I've put together a guide for Scrivener 2 users on updating to Scrivener 2. This is aimed purely at Scrivener 2 users who are running into issues bringing across Preferences and Compile presets into Scrivener 3. You don't need to read this if you are new to Scrivener or experienced no friction with the new approaches taken by Scrivener 3.

You can find the guide here:

All the best,

Keith,

First off, I think this is a great idea: it's a really helpful guide.

But I think there's a slight issue in the document: Sharing Your Formats at bullet point 4 in the third list of this document.

It currently reads Select “Chapter Title” on the left and “Chapter Heading” on the right.

Shouldn't it be the other way round? You previously set up Chapter Heading as the Section Type (left), while Chapter Title was the Section Layout (right).

A minor detail, but just in case it confuses anyone.

Thanks again for the guide!

Thanks, brookter, this should now be fixed.
All the best,
