It would be less convenient for me to have the document refocused than
the search window (as happens at the moment). I'm much more likely to
want to run a series of find/replace tasks on one or two files than to
run the same find/replace task on a series of files. In the latter
case, I wouldn't use TeXShop anyway. But I'd be in Terminal which
obviously isn't your favourite haunt. :)
