Could we get a search box in Scrivener's Preferences? System Preferences has one and it's a big help. Scrivener has so many options it becomes burdensome to try to remember or find them (40+ separate panels by my count), not including Project Settings which are in a separate UI element....

I don't know how easy it would be to do that, but do note every single checkbox and switch is documented in Appendix B, of the user manual PDF. Since that is going to be describing them as well as listing them, it might be more helpful in cases where descriptions use more & different words than the interface will.
