Agree the v.2.0 looks very slick.  

I second the pulldown symbol  (down facing triangle) suggestion. This
would especially helpful for the simple preview one.

I had a similar reaction. This is a wonderfully simple and elegant
interface and I hate to suggest elaboration, but many users are sadly
not adventurous, and the problem is getting them to make that first
click to see the other options.  Perhaps just adding the more or less
universal pull down symbol, the down facing triangle, after each link
with a menu? 


I see what you're saying. We discussed and actually prototyped this. A
combobox looks extremely clunky.


A tooltip will be provided (if there isn't already one); a second option
is a one-time message the user clicks on to make it disappear.
