The default text colour is used by notes that don’t have a specific text colour set; or, to put it another way, when you apply a text colour to individual notes, as described below, that overrides the the default text colour.
When the text you are searching for is located offscreen, Scapple will automatically scroll the board so that the match is displayed.
The concept is straightforward: when I’m in the early, planning stages of a project…
If all else fails, try quitting and re-launching Scapple and try again.

The comma between early and planning is not needed. Personally—to reduce the "I" count from 3 to 2 in that sentence—I'd go for:

... I tend to take a piece of A3 paper and just write my thoughts and ideas all over it, in no particular order, making notes off of one idea and drawing lines and arrows between them ...
The “Connect With Arrow” command will only make arrow connections from the ﬁrst note selected to subsequently-connected arrows; it will not make arrow connections between every single note.
If you need to select all of the notes (and potentially shapes within shapes), inside of a
When working with notes inside of Scapple, all of the notes in the selection will be acted upon.

Thus, the early stage of the project may be the planning stage. Arguably you could remove the commas and place "planning" in brackets: "When I'm in the early (planning) stages". That would demote the importance of planning in the sentence, though, which wouldn't serve Scapple very well.
Regarding extraneous prepositions: I think Keith wrote this whole section, so I'll thank you to stop blaming Americans.
