I thought that keeping track of the feature requested on this list   
for TeXShop—but I probably forgot some— might be helpful.

A—Line numbers in the source file window (that the Console refers to)

	—B: Change font size in the source window (Available: Source > Font  
 > Bigger/Smaller)

	—C: Change Command I  from meaning Source > Font > Italic to a  
keyboard command for \emph (Available under Leopard: Goedde, March

D— Change Command B from meaning Source > Font > Bold to a keyboard  
command for \textbf

E—A way to collapse one or more sections' text / better yet an  
outliner mode

F—A Typeset button that does NOT save at the same time

	—G: Let the bottom of the source window be standard, with a  
horizontal scroll bar (Available: Source > Wrap Lines > None)

H—The ability to split the output window as well as the source window  
(if possible with sync)

I—A button in the source window to open the output window (To bypass  
the menu's File > Open for Preview)

	—J: Cursor staying put (Available: Pref > Document > Select on  

K—Colored matched brackets.
