One extra note. TeXShop uses a search for text surrounding the point  
of Cmd-clicking and then in the source file. This works well if you  
are more or less in a plain text section of text but not in the  
middle of an equation or heavy formatting code. Also, if you have  
lots of repeated text (e.g., you're trying to test out something with  
Lorem Ipsum text) this search technique doesn't work very well. Most  
of the time I've had great success and would miss it if I lost it.

Good Luck,
