This was reported as fixed in an earlier beta, but if you go into Options (Appearance | Main Editor) and untick "Use fixed width editor" (and don't make any other changes), Scrivener will insist it needs to restart before your changes can be applied, but in fact the change is applied immediately without any restart.

Confirmed. Note that you can immediately change back to a non-fixed width editor, hit apply, and don't get the restart required message.
