After a few hints I read in the forum about the possible release of 3.0 for Mac in 2016, I am certainly thrilled and anxious to know more about what's coming. I know you guys won't share any release plan - which I understand. But is it possible to give us some idea about the new paid version, even just a few words that make my authors heart jumping? :)

Keith is being tight-lipped for the most part, probably to prevent copy-cats from implementing inferior but look-alike features ahead of 3.0's release. (And yes, it's happened before).

But if you search KB's posts (click on his user handle, then use the "search user's posts" link), you can see a few screenshots. I had to go back to the 4th page of results to see the "swim lanes" screenshot, which are apparently based on Labels...

Yes ... very tight lipped :D
However, whatever may come, Scrivener gave my work as an author such a positive drive, that I am going to buy it blind folded, too. :D
Can't wait for the next big thing ... pardon ... next paid version. :)

Hmm, a few words, let's see... How about "writing", "tutorial" and "now"? :)

We'll have news soonish. The hard part is going to be letting our Windows users down gently. The macOS update is likely to be a good six months ahead of the Windows one (like an inverse Microsoft), but our Windows developers are working on a 3.0 to match the macOS version (in case any Windows users happen along here)...

In that case, "opening", "wallet", "now".

Actually: desperately looking forward to swim-lanes, as this author has to slalom storylines around some insanely serpentine historical facts. Please bring on latest L&L triumph soonest.

I think it is timely. I just updated to the beta for Sierra 12.1, and get the sense that there needs to be updates to several programs to go with the new aspects of iOS and OS out coming out. I also think that helpful messages that pop up as I work that would be helpful to me mastering Scrivener would be terrific. Speaking as one who uses Scrivener for my doctorate studies, and, soon, dissertation writing, I would welcome anything that will help me utilize Scrivener more effectively.

Also, I would hope that the new 3.0 would have some additional updated educational and scholars-type templates. I cannot seem to edit the current APA template without some real investigation, and I still cannot seem to edit it right. Updated and more useful templates would make this my stand alone go to program.

Gah, TWO awesome apps released/ing to beta (Forklift 3 is out a few hours ago, by far the best IMO file manager on macOS). How am I going to get real work done!?!?!?!?

8) 8) 8)

:twisted:
Press release: Literature and Latte announce an advanced preview of Scrivener version 3 for Windows.

This advanced preview will be tested first on the Mac platform to work out any flaws in the implementation (those silly Mac users will gladly act as guinea pigs for the benefit of Windows users :lol: ), but will showcase new features and design elements that Windows users can look forward to*. Lit & Lat are happy to bring this quantum leap in Scrivener technology as soon as 2018 or sooner!
:twisted:
*Some slight differences between the advanced release and the final version may occur, purely for the benefit of the Windows user base.


PR problems: Solved! :wink:

Lots of words. All of them along the lines of, "We're not announcing timelines until we're ready."

Gosh, you guys play hardball. :) Some little hints to feed the fans of your work - just once in a while - would be nice and so desired. :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:
