I've put up something on my download site, <http://homepage.mac.com/ 
herbs2/>, that might be of interest to those using TeXShop. It is  
possible to add functionality to applications that use the NSTextView  
framework for text entry (this includes TeXShop and several other  
text editors [Sigh... not BBEdit], Mail and other applications). I've  
put together what I believe is a useful set of additional bindings  
that are easy to add (and remove if you don't like them). This is  
available, with installation instructions and a webloc file that  
points to lots more information about this technique as well as an  
Incremental Search InputManager (produced by Michael O. McCracken).  
Pick up the files as KeyBindings.zip.

E.g., setting a Mark in a file buffer (using Ctl-x Space with the  
binding I supply) and then swapping the insertion point and the Mark  
(using Ctl-x Ctl-x). Handy for jumping back and forth between two  
locations in a file. (Yes, I know that this is taken from emacs.)

You can also add an incremental search into all of this too. This is  
available in all applications that use NSTextView for text entry;  
e.g., TeXShop and several other editors (not BBEdit though), Mail  
and, I believe, text entry boxes in Safari.

Please let me know of any problems you have installing this and also  
what you think about it.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
