I'm getting the impression that you think TeXShop is a Word Processor and
it's not; TeXShop is a ``Front End'' for TeX/LaTeX, a typesetting system.
Besides TeXShop you'll also need to get a TeX/LaTeX system and learn how to
write documents that can be processed by that system. It isn't hard to get
started but it will take some some time and effort on your part to get to
customize the way things look and work. I'd suggest a first stop at
for an introduction and then on to other parts of the site to find out more
about what is available and where/how to get it.

Hope that points you in the right direction.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
