This is in reference to Windows version #3.

Everything I need to compile my document is found in one place - the compile form. The only thing missing is saved configurations. Every time I compile I must start over from scratch in selecting, filtering, meta-data, etc. It would be of great help and time saving to save a configuration and use it again later for a future compile. The configuration can be updated by the user as the document changes or modifications in configuration. So for example, I might have 10 different configurations for one document.

Windows Scrivener 3 is still in beta testing, so not all planned functionality has been implemented yet. For that reason, I'm moving this thread to the beta forum.

Hello! Echoing what Katherine said, Compile is not fully functional at the moment. That said there should be a way to do what you are describing using the Formats Section of the Compile page, which allows you to duplicate and/or modify the default formats as well as create your own. Is there a specific thing you are looking for that formats does not allow for?
