[OS X TeX] Keyboard Shortcuts in TeXShop

As to keyboard shortcuts for zooming:

First, a comment on the German localization. I don't have a German  
keyboard, so I'd like those using the German localization to tell me  
what to use. I believe it is possible to reach into the TeXShop  
bundle with Interface Builder and edit Menu.nib, adding keystroke  
equivalents. If agreement can be reached on the right choices, I'll  
happily add them to the German localization.

As to keyboard shortcuts to make fonts bigger in the Source and  
magnification bigger in Preview, I agree that the same shortcuts  
should should be used for both cases. This already happens on  
Leopard. The question is then which shortcuts to use. Preview uses  
apple-plus and apple-minus, with no shift key. TextEdit uses apple- 
plus (with a shift key) and apple-minus (with no shift key). I prefer  
the Preview choice; if you overshoot, you can move over and undo  
without changing the shift key position.

Unfortunately, I don't know if these key strokes are the same in  
other localizations.
