"  I wish there were a way to search all the release notes at once."

ditto that! 

And it goes back to an older request I had (of course someone will say "you can build that yourself"

that the IDE should have a very robust text/layout/typsetting palette… so that newbies coming on board don’t feel this platform is unusable for "real classy" design work..

    It took me forever to find a definitive list, which I now know is 
    located in the LC 5.5 release notes. There really should be a lesson or 
    summary about this stuff.
    To control line spacing individually, you can set the field's 
    fixedLineHeight to true and its textheight to the smallest spacing 
    you'll need, and then use the "spaceAbove" and/or the "spaceBelow" 
    adjustments to manage specific lines.
    The "new-ish" field and text properties are very, very powerful and I 
    use them a lot. But if you don't know about them, it is almost 
    impossible to discover they exist. I only found them because I 
    remembered some new features were implemented, but I actually had to 
    open and read every release note going to back to 5.5 before I found them.
