When you open a v2 project in v3, it makes a backup of the v2 project. In a post of a few days ago, KB said that the release version 3 will be able to export projects into v2 format and will be then able to re-import them, to help people who have to work between Mac and Windows before Windows v3 is available. I haven't tried it, but that should solve your issue.
On the other hand, as one of the beta testers for the last 11 months, for me, Scrivener 3 has been completely stable with no sign of a crash/hang or whatever.
The Scrivenato sometimes known as Mr X. iMac 27" (late 2015) 10.15.2, 24GB RAM, 512GB SSID MBP17" (late 2011) 10.13.6, 16GB RAM, 2TB SSID 2017 iPad, iPadOS 13.3, 128GB, Apple Pencil Scrivener, Scapple, Nisus Writer Pro, Bookends …
You get a whole new demo period with 3.0, so you can give it a spin for a while and see whether or not it is ready for you, too. As noted above, there are ample methods for stepping back to v2 should you need to.

Looks like I arrived late to the party for this question. I was out of town when the beta ended before I could convert. Is there a tool version available to downgrade my project back to v2?
Let me know, Thanks!
P.S. beta looked good. Only issue I found (can't autosave spelling that includes 'é') appears to have been spotted by others earlier. Looking forward to release (but would like to continue working on my novel until then)!

You do know that this thread was about the Mac version, released last year?
