     1. When one selects cases in SPSS, if one chooses to "filter"

     select cases on some condition to Transform-Compute a new boolean
     variable based on a desired condition, then Data-Select Cases and
     Use Filter Variable on the new boolean? I've got this to work at
     least once, but for now it's not changing my data view despite
     some lovely 1.00 and .00 values in the boolean filter variable. I
     do notice there is a "Transformations Pending" note at the bottom
     of the UI.  

It works the same way as in spss, but the X in the row titles hasn't
yet been implemented.  It's been on the list of bugs for some time
now.  The bug tracker
has the ability for people to "vote" for those items they'd most like
to see fixed, but this feature doesn't seem to have been used much.
Perhaps we should encourage people to start using it.

     2. I understand graphs aren't doable at this point from psppire,
        so is the way to do them to get up a syntax window and enter
        the appropriate pspp syntax from Examine etc?   

You can get a syntax window by selecting File->New->Syntax.  If you
then enter some syntax which generates charts, they will be written to
an external file, and you'll see a message telling you that.
