1) I thought that keeping track of the features requested on this  
list  for TeXShop might be helpful.
2) I am not too good at it but should improve.
3) This is ABSOLUTELY NOT a substitute to making requests on  
SourceForge (It started as a way to gauge the importance accorded to  
wishes on this list but, while that didn't seem to generate much  
interest, the "keeping track" seems to have.)

L was dropped accidentally  :-(   see 2) above
M, N, O are at the request of Richard Seguin

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  
24, 2008 11:35:58 AM EDT)

	—D: Change Command B from meaning Source > Font > Bold to a keyboard  
command for \textbf (Available under Leopard: Goedde, March 24, 2008  
2:43:20 PM EDT)

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

F1—A SECOND Typeset button, one that does NOT save at the same time
F2—A preference option to control whether Typeset saves or not - and  
link that to the keyboard typeset command.

	—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.

L—Emacs <-> TeXShop. For details, see Loukanova, March 24, 2008  
5:51:47 PM EDT

M—An option to color $ ... $ strings a solid color.

N—An option to always open documents (.tex and .pdf) in the same  
position where they were last closed. (Koch wrote to me about that  
but I will leave it to him.)

O—An option that allows the Tags menu drop down to always display at  
the same scroll position from which the last tag was selected.
