Wishes A, H, R1 and R2 have granted.
In order to facilitate later archive searches, features being
suggested/requested on this list should probably be suggested/
requested and discussed IN SEPARATE THREADS, UNDER THEIR OWN NAME,
rather than in this thread. Note that this List of feature requests
on this list refers to such posts for details.
Suggesting a TeXShop feature on this list is absolutely not an
alternative to making a request at http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?
This "wish list" is a compilation of TeXShop features being suggested/
requested on this list. Omissions result from my negligence rather
than from my malevolence. (This thread started as a way to gauge the
importance accorded to features suggested/requested on this list but,
while "voting" didn't seem to generate much interest, "keeping track"
seems to have.)
—A: Line numbers in the source file window (that the Console refers
to) as an option (to turn it off on simple documents) TeXShop now has
optional line numbers (At least as of v2.25)
—B: Change font size in the source window (Available: Source > Font
—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 & Also works for Tiger: Munn March 30, 2008
7:26:50 PM 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 & Also works for Tiger: Munn March 30, 2008

E—A way to collapse one or more sections' text / better yet an
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.
F3—Have a Command-click/Option-click/Control-click choice that runs
the file but doesn't save it. (See Litchfield, March 3, 2009 4:14:29
—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) TeXShop can split the output window
with sync support. TeXShop does not sync the top portion of source to
the top portion of output and the bottom portion of source to the
bottom portion of output. Instead, sync from either portion of source
syncs to the active portion of output. Thus, wishes R1 and R2 have
been considered as granted.
—I: A button in the source window to open the output window (To
bypass the menu's File > Open for Preview)( Available: a) Window >
Source<>Preview, b) with a key press: Apple-1)
