It certainly does and I certainly didn't know :-[ .
Here is the request to TeXShop as I just filed it:
A button [Open pdf] in the toolbar of an open source that would open
the pdf without recompiling the source.
Actually, I just realized that things are a bit more complicated
since, when I open a source, the pdf opens with it.
So, what I really would like is:
- when the pdf has been closed, for [Open pdf] to reopen it (rather
than having to go through Open for Preview in the File menu)
- when there is no pdf, for [Open pdf] to create a pdf with the date
of the last modification rather than the current compilation date.
So, when there is an exsting pdf, [Open pdf] would merely do what Cmd-1
already does. However, there is the more complicated issue when there is
no already existing pdf.
