Papers 3 for Windows Beta 4 (3.0.7)

The latest released update for Papers 3 for Windows is Beta 4 (version 3.0.7).

To update to Beta 4, simply launch the earlier version of the app and you will be prompted for an update. You can also install it manually by downloading it from here

Please note that this is pre-release software and should be used carefully. Always make a backup of your Papers library before upgrading to a new version. Also, just to be on the safe side, don't install it if you have a looming deadline or you're half-way through writing a paper!

Note: If you start Papers 3 for Windows Beta 3 (or any of the other earlier updates ) and see a notification about the update, it might take a moment before you are asked to install the update.
