In script mode, I select Scene Heading format.

Bug 1: As I start to type, the [Enter] [Tab] info on the footer changes (scroll down both images to see the difference). It is now incorrect - the [Tab] info is missing. It still (correctly) says that Enter will change the format to Action.

Bug 2: But when I press Enter, the format on the next line is incorrectly formatted as Scene Heading again.

Thanks for the catch. The first one isn't a bug; once you start typing, a Tab character in the Scene Heading element no longer changes the line to a new element but instead will insert " - ", as defined in the script settings. It is a bug though that hitting Enter at the end of the line is not setting the new line to the Action element, so I'll get that back on the list.
