Ah, thanks, rdale. I was a little baffled there; had just opened a project from 2017 to see what it was, closed it, trashed it, and found a backup.scriv version had appeared. When exactly was Scrivener 3?

Further to a thread on my old projects producing backup files called "Filename.backup.scriv" in the old manner, I'm told that updating the projects would stop this behaviour. How do I update a project, please?
In fact, I have a vague memory of asking about this before, and subsequently tracking down a bunch of Scrivener projects with "Backup" in the names, putting them in a folder, zipping it and trashing the original folder. But these must have reappeared after that. I wonder is the problem tha...

The Select All/Move To option kind of worked; I now have 14 items in my Sourdough folder, though there were 23 results in the search. Well, it's an improvement… Yeah, if I find a recipe I like I sling it into a Recipes project. I'm a bad person.
