It does not seem to be possible to copy formatted text from Scrivener 3 Beta via clipboard to MS Word or LibreOffice. The formatting gets always lost.

I'm just discovering that nothing has changed yet. Copy & paste from Scrivener beta to Libre Office will lose formatting.

If you'd like to transfer stuff to Libre Writer or Word, you can use the sync function and then open the resulting rtf file with either and it does a good job. You are right though, copy and paste loses formatting.
