And the thing I dislike about hard wraps is the occasional spurious  
space introduced when the wrap occurs in the middle of commands.

A simple work around... after editing your file in TeXShop Edit- 
 >Select All (Cmd-A) and then Source->Wrap Lines->Hard Wrap (Shft-Cmd- 
H) will hard wrap everything.
