Oh, also, if you include help topics or a more detailed manual with the next beta or 1.0, I think I agree that specifying that the stage/screenplay section is supposed to be basic, it would be good as I could also see people complaining that it doesn't necessarily follow every single formatting condition ever.

The second is the corkboard, which does not seem fully functional (pins and status do not appear)

There are a few things that caught me off-guard. The first is the font preference for General Text Attributes: changing this does not change the font of existing text, so at first I thought the preferences were not being saved/applied -- perhaps a mention in the tutorial or eventually the help file.
The second is the corkboard, which does not seem fully functional (pins and status do not appear) ... I'm assuming this is in a known bug, as the pins worked in a previous beta.
The third is having multiple projects open, then exiting and starting Scrivener: only the most recently-opened project is opened. This is by design, judging by the wording of the Preferences checkbox, but it is disconcerting the first time.
* A Text->Convert option to remove line breaks. I imported a 70-char wide email and ended up removing the line breaks in an external editor.
* A way to select all text in multiple documents (or in Edit Scrivenings) and apply font changes. Based purely on my whim to switch from the default font to good old Courier ... after importing all of my files.
* An Applescript dictionary. This is obviously a very involved process and not worthy of a version 1 feature (possibly not worth doing at all). Still, the ability to access (even read-only) the Scrivener binder/group/text contents and metadata from something like DevonThink would be very nice.

You can manually change documents you have selected in the Binder using Edit/Convert Format of Selected Documents
Check in View/Index Cards, and see if there is a check beside those two items.
Like AmberV says, this is just a view option. Just hit Cmd-P and Cmd-S to see them both.
Not sure this is really Scrivener's job. Do you just mean removing newlines?
Not in the near future.

On barely-related note: do you ever wonder if, perhaps, we're all a little insane on this forum? Dost thou thinkest that, say, a Shakespeare or a Dostoevsky worried or cared about the sorts of niggling issues we seem to care about so much here in this forum?
