[Mac OS X TeX] TeXShop + external editor/invocation

<x-flowed>Hi there,

I was wondering if there's a way to make TeXShop use an external editor 
instead of the built in one. Alternatively, can one use TeXShop simply as a 
front end to TeX, and as a previewer?

I notice that TeXShop seems to cache copies of open documents in memory -- 
this has the unfortunate consequence that you can open a .tex or .pdf file 
in another application, and change it while it's open in TeXShop. This can 
lead to rather unexpected behavior, because it's never clear exactly what's 
on the disk at any given time, and you can lose all your changes by saving 
>from the wrong application.

A nice feature for the next TeXShop would be an ability to detect that the 
file has changed on the disk.

Thanks in advance,

Nike V.
