Yes, but there should be a checkbox to choose one's preferred 
behaviour. I'm still unsure what I like best.

I would prefer a way to mark a whole range of pages for printing.

Some more ideas:

- Automatically add everything written to CommandCompletion.txt. Or 
even better: Leave it the way it is, but make the contents of some 
dictionary (Apple's, Excalibur's, CocoAspell's ...) available for 

- Add a shortcut to switch between preview and TeX source (like 
command-1 in current TexShop), where the TeX source is NOT the main 
file (but references the latter by %SourceDoc or .texshop).

- Allow customization of what get's automatially added to the Marker 
Menu and what does not (e.g. I have redefined \section to \mysection, 
and now the sections no longer show up in the menu)

- Working hyperlinks in the preview window would be great (or an option 
to use Apple's new Preview instead)

- In the preview window, a crosshair cursor and a display of 
coordinates (in physical units of the document, not just pixels) would 
be great, as I often have to rearrange equations until the fit 
completely inside the _invisible_ margin (so there's no longer an 
"overfull hbox" warning).

- Bug report: When I hit the BibTeX button in the source window of a 
secondary source file (not the main %SourceDoc one), LaTeX is run 
instead of BibTex.
