One little quibble: When you change the font size of a note in the inspector, then apply a Note Style through the contextual menu (like "Red Text"), the font size jumps back to the default 12 pt. Not preserving that font size pretty much obviates the one-touch simplicity of using a contextual menu to make, for example, a bunch of headers in red.
(Note: The Steve Jobs answer to this issue, of course, is, "We did a lot of research, and we discovered that our users don't need big, red notes." )

I did try dragging and dropping an entry from scapple (my spell checker keeps wanting to "correct" the name) to the latest beta of Scrivener 2.3.5 but the dragged entry keeps bouncing back and not sticking on the corkboard. I'm using a Macbook Pro with 10.8.2 OS X for what it's worth.

Yes, as Mark says, you can only drag to the freeform corkboard. I'll be adding support for dragging to the binder, too, though.
All the best,

Damn, boy! What the hell did you do to your Retnia Macbook Pro? Were you drop-testing it or something?
Good luck with the trip to Apple Care. Do you happen to listen to John Siracusa's show on the 5by5 network Hypercritical? He's been banging on lately about when you do and don't get refurbished parts when you go to Apple Care.
Would it be possible to support video as an after-the-fact download like the way OS X handles Java?

Sorry about that. I've been a flurry of activity trying to get through all the posts, and I think I've lost track of a couple - I had missed that you'd replied to my previous questions.
Interesting! Have you tried re-downloading and reinstalling (apologies if you've already established that)? This seems to indicate that the "Inspector" interface file won't load, which suggests a corrupted installation.
Nothing at all - in fact, I have barely touched my Retina MacBook since I bought it. I only bought it so that I could test out all of Scrivener's new high-res graphics on it, and only use it for testing that Scrivener and Scapple look good on it. It's just a dodgy connection between the screen and computer, it seems.
Huh, no, I haven't listened to that. Refurbished parts from AppleCare? For the money I expect them to replace everything with new parts, dammit.
