If you're using XDA Labs, try viewing it in browser.

I installed it using OOS 10.0.1 Stable and it seems to run perfectly fine. Very stable rom so far and I'm enjoying it a lot. Good job!
I would like to try it, but I'm on OOS beta and I'm afraid that will cause problems. I won't be near a. PC until Monday so I can't flash stable because I don't think it can be flashed over the beta

A screenshot of the custom options menu. If you have any questions about this rom before flashing feel free to ask and I'll answer it. I'll just say it's smoooooooooth.

I highly recommend it. I think I've found my new daily custom after thinking I'd have to give up custom roms on my 6T. I don't see any reason the beta shouldn't work though but I understand not wanting to risk it.
I'm surprised Stable even worked for you, the instructions say to downgrade to Pie first. Unless I misread something

Exactly what flashing procedure did you use if you don't mind me asking

I was on OOS 10.0.1 as I mentioned, so I followed this:

1. Reboot to recovery
2. Format data
3. Reboot to recovery
4. Flash MSM Xtended
5. Flash TWRP for Q
6. Reboot to recovery
7. Flash ExLite Normal GAPPS
8. Flash Magisk v20.1
9. Reboot to system
10. Profit

And that did it for me

Edit:
If you have trouble with doing the initial setup, try doing a factory reset in TWRP. (Wipe->Swipe for factory reset)

So if you have to format before flashing, I'll need to wait untill tomorrow when I have access to my pc. Formatting will delete the ROM, gapps, and twrp img I have downloaded already to the device correct?

Formatting data will wipe out all of your user data. Any installed apps, texts, call logs, etc will be wiped out. Flashing MSM Xtended will get rid of TWRP since it flashes a new kernel which is why you flash TWRP after flashing the rom.

So if you want to keep your apps, their data, texts, call log use something like Titanium Backup or Swift Backup.

I tend to format data mostly to reduce the chance of issues with pre-existing encryption. You really just need a compatible vendor which formatting data doesn't touch.

I don't care about the apps and data. I'm saying won't it delete the copy of MSM and Gapps that I have downloaded to my device? In other words, if I follow your instructions and format right away, I will no longer have the files on my device to continue the process. Am I correct? Thank you for answering my dumb questions, I've twrp and magisk on this device for nearly a year, but I've steered clear of a custom ROM sothis would be my first try on an A/B device

Oh, yes it will delete everything on your internal storage.
