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.

Grateful regards
