This "wish list" is a compilation of TeXShop features being suggested/ 
requested on this list.

By the way, suggesting a TeXShop feature on this list is absolutely  
not an alternative to making a request at  http://sourceforge.net/ 
tracker/?group_id=155796&atid=797241 . (This thread started as a way  
to gauge the importance accorded to wishes suggested on this list  
but, while "voting" didn't seem to generate much interest, "keeping  
track" seems to have.)

1) I will be away in May but since gmail keeps my mail, I will not  
unsubscribe and will catch up with the wish list in June.
2) The time stamps are to help you wade through archives, yours and/ 
or online, but may differ from what you the archive have. Also, I  
will add the missing time stamps ASAP.
