I mean in the Editor. And I should have mentioned also the "braces" 
that contain arguments for commands, like \frac, superscript and 
subscript, etc. In the Editor these all get very hard to keep track 

I'm using TeXShop Version 2.10beta8 (210).

For long equations in which I know I've gotten lost because the file 
won't render, I sometimes resort to taking a screen shot, printing it 
and then, with various colored hi-lighters breaking it down to find 
the error. It would be nice if the colored hi-lighters were in the 

Thanks for all the help.
