I'm an academic and I use Scrivener mostly to organize my notes for any articles I read or for my ethnographic fieldwork. For my literature, I have my main Scrivener file, which is kind of my extended brain. I write notes or copy-paste sections from articles or books that I've read, so that I can quickly find or remember their main points. It's close to 1500 items as we speak.
With the old version, I would type in a keyword like "community" and have the binder neatly display all my notes that feature this word. It's a great way to organize your thinking prior to writing, to sort of see that "oh yeah, I forgot that article talked about community, too". With this type of work, it was essential that whenever I clicked an item the binder would also focus on that item. I could see what articles were next to it, which would again spark my imagination and help me make connections.
The current system has messed up my workflows. Navigating between items in the binder is not as intuitive, and I've noticed that since installing Scrivener 3 I'm not writing as many notes into the system as I used to.
So yes, I hope a compromise is coming. I know I'm not the only academic who does this type of thing with Scrivener.
edit. yes, I know this is an old topic. But I was forced to migrate from Scrivener 2 very recently.
