OSX Dialogs Etc.

Firstly - thanks Frank for your very informative help on the templates

I realise that OSX Abiword is very much work-in-progress and I have
scoured the web pages now. There are just a couple of questions I have
to make me 'comfortable' with using Abiword as my wp.

(1) Am I to assume that the disabled options in the preference panes
have just not been fully developed yet? Such as - default paper size;
Dictionary preference; Custom Dictionary etc. I'm happy to be patient
but was worried I might have a faulty install or have not done
something I should!

(2) The screen shots of Cocoa dialogs on the web site include a page
setup dialog (margins etc.,) that I don't get in the application. Is
this correct or, again, am I missing something?

(3) I downloaded the UK English dictionary but am not able to select it
anywhere (disabled option as above). Also - during spell checks I have
requested the system to 'add' a new word but upon next opening the
document the same spellings are underlined. Again - is this just not
implemented yet?

I love the look of Abiword and look forward to it being fully finished
on the Mac. I am just concerned that I have not set it up properly!
Once again I applaud those giving so much effort for the many.

Thanks for any advice and help and explanations that can be offered.
